As you can read in the wiki, ZVDateTimePicker is an obsolete control. It was replaced with DateTimePicker, which is regularly maintained.

ZVDateTimePicker has not been updated for years.
If you have an old project which uses ZVDateTimeControls, you can try the tool mentioned in wiki (page linked above) to convert the project to use DateTimeControls.
