Okay, now for the next variant. I want to synchronize 2 PC's that are networked and running LabVIEW programs. setting the clock on the PC that is running the program is easy, but how do I get the time from another PC?
I tried looking into the windows time service, but that is way more complicated than I need. I have them networked through a switch with no DNS (Domain name server) running. Therfore they are simply networked.

Of course you could sync both pc directly to a day-time server usuing the public domain utility found here. There are command line swithces so that you can call NISTime.23 with System Exec.vi
I could be wrong but based on the way the OP described the enviroment I don't think these computers have any access to the internet. The only devices they see are all connected to a single switch. Therefore while your solution would work in most cases it would not work for this particular situation.
