You need to look up the locale information. Basically, you should take a look at GetTimeFormat() and GetDateFormat().

Are you using MFC, then there is better solution.

I'm using the MFC (Visual C++ 5.0 under NT/95).
I need to be able to set and get the date/time and to parse the string I will receive with the get.

GetDateFormat() *is* the correct answer.  You might want to use
GetLocaleInfo() first, but it is not required.

         TCHAR datefmt[ 32 ];
         GetLocaleInfo( LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT,
                                 LOCALE_SSHORTDATE,
                                  datefmt, sizeof(datefmt) );

You need COleDateTime::ParseDateTime().  If you aren't using MFC, then you can use VarDateFromStr() which is described in oleauto.h.

COleDateTime::Format
CString Format(DWORD dwFlags = 0, LCID lcid = LANG_USER_DEFAULT);
