 You know you can't depend on the internal representation of DateTime,
 right? You should get date.Ticks and pass the 64 bit integer, then
 with the returned value create a new DateTime.
 Your code is bound to break with the MS runtime, too, sooner or later.

+I don't think your comments are relevant to the code I'm using as I'm
+not using any internal represention of System.DateTime. I'll post the
+code shortly and then you can see. All the modifications to the
+DateTime object are being done in the managed world, using the
+official DateTime api. What I am doing is passing the DateTime
+instance between the managed and unmanaged world as a managed ref type
+which is just an unmanaged void * pointer on the managed side.
