    My tests showed that this does not work if you use the names that are shown in the XP timezone dialog (GMT+0100) Windhuk). It seems that those are only display names.
    When I used the names for the subkeys of
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones
    it worked well. Those names are all English and it seems that XP needs that.
