I have FSX installed on two computers, An AMD 4800+ running XP and an i7 8700K running Windows 10.

Aa far as I can see, the FSX installation on both machines is identical, but, the one on W10 shows a time difference of two hours between local and GMT for Germany, the one on XP shows no difference,  In fact, there should be a two hour difference.

What could be the problem?

Germany is on Central European Summer Time (CEST) which GMT +2 for daylight savings time.  FSX will use the current time from your pc's os.  Windows 10 appears to reflect current DST, hence FSX displaying the time change for CEST.  It looks like XP is not set to do so. What times do your two pc's actually display?    

Also, are your time and date settings plus location identical for each install of FSX?

It appears to be only the CET timezone which is affected.

This is the time display for India:

Both systems have the same clock settings for both the system clock and in FSX.
