ASP VBScript UK Date Format Default
Posted on 2003-11-10
I want my ASP vbscript functions to always return dd/MM/yyyy british formats by default.
I have a page with the following code
Sometimes it returns 11/6/2003 11:17:55 AM and sometimes 06/11/2003 11:17:42 (I also get the same scenario with currencies switching between £ and $ which suggests to me IIS switching Regional Settings). I can have the same page opened in separate browser windows within seconds of each other showing the different formats.
I have sifted through newsgroups for help, these are the things I have tried to no avail
* The registry key HKEY_USERS/.Default/Control Panel/International is set correctly (I understand that IUSR | IWAM account uses this)
* I remotely log on as Administrator. My regional settings are UK English, The Set Default is UK English (although it was US English).
* There are two other profiles under HKEY_USERS/ both of these have UK settings, as is the case with HKEY_CURRENTUSER
* I added a key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\OLEAUT
VarConversionLocaleSetting = 2 and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\InetInfo\Parameters SetVarConversionLocaleSetting = 2 which should force IIS to use system default Regional Settings
I have since rebooted, yet still the problem persists. I have even explicity set the Session.LCID = 2057 in the global.asa session and application startup events. However, I don't want a coding solution as I don't see why it should require one.
Server config is Windows2000 Advanced Server, Service Pack 4. IIS version 5.0
