Date Formats Wrong

My copy of Delphi is refusing to display dates in the format defined in Control Panel|Regional Settings.

I've checked the shortdatetime format variable at runtime and it's m/d/y format, not d/m/y as I have set in the control panel.

I've also checked in the registry, and it's entered correctly there.  Anyone got any ideas?

You can use FormatDateTime function or you should check your win.ini file and look for the [intl] section where the variable sShortDate must be d/m/y.
