ModifiedDate value in project.xml of .egp file

We are trying to understand the format of the date fields of  the tags CreatedOn and ModifiedOn in the project.xml file of the .egp.

 

        <Element Type="SAS.EG.ProjectElements.EGTask">
            <Element>

. . .

                <Type>TASK</Type>
                <Container>1df71fd1-5333-41f1-94e0-031f3e35aa71</Container>

     ....

                <CreatedOn>633239148246822370</CreatedOn>
                <ModifiedOn>633252968775056542</ModifiedOn>

 

It is not the normal SAS date time value which is the number of seconds since Jan 1, 1960, as this is too large a value for that.

Does anyone know how to interpret and convert these date values?

Re: ModifiedDate value in project.xml of .egp file

First, usual caveats for spelunking into the project file: not documented by SAS, and subject to change.

 

Next:

I think it's a Microsoft datetime value (as EG is a Windows app), and that's the number of ticks since Jan 1, 0001 AD.  Big number!  More here in this blog post, including how to convert to SAS.
