Unix time (__time64_t or time_t) to FILETIME

Here is the code to convert unix time (__time64_t) to FILETIME. You can also use time_t, in which case you would need to use Int32x32to64(t, 10000000) function to multiply in the below code.

void UnixTimeToFileTime(__time64_t t, FILETIME * pFT)
	// Note that LONGLONG is a 64-bit value
	ll = (t * 10000000) + 116444736000000000;
	pFT->dwLowDateTime = (DWORD)ll;
	pFT->dwHighDateTime = ll >> 32;
