Hi friends!

  I have developed an application in VB 6.0, which requires the
system date format to be 'dd/mm/yyyy' to function properly.At
present, I'm changeing it from the control panel before installing
the application in each system.

  Is there any way to change it programmatically? If so, please
give me the coding to change the system date format.

  Thank You!

I would suggest that you change the application to use whatever the date format the user has chosen. Some users might have want it the way that they have set it.
The VB Date/time value is the same regardless of the display format.
