  WrtDate = aqDateTime.SetDateTimeElements(2010, 07, 10, 11, 41, 53);
  
  // Creates a file
  aqFile.Create(sPath);
  
  // Sets a new time when the file was created, last accessed and modified
  FileInfo.SetCreationTime(CrtDate);
  FileInfo.SetLastAccessTime(AccDate);
  FileInfo.SetLastWriteTime(WrtDate);
  
  // Posts the specified time values to the test log
  Log.Message( FileInfo.GetCreationTime );
