Date Format

*Overview*
All region options are set to UK.
LongDate Format is: dd MMMM yyyy
ShortDate Format is:  dd/MM/yyyy

Yet at a command prompt when I type date I get:

The current date is: 08/26/2004

Why ?? and how do I change it ??

I thought I should get: 26/08/2004

Also I presume this will be affecting the way the dates are shown on the ASP Pages I host !!!

Any Ideas ??

You must have missed one - miss one and it will go back to US settings very quickly.

Control Panel, Regional and Language Options.

First tab (Regional Options)
Standards and Formats: "English (United Kingdom)"
Location: "United Kingdom"

Second Tab (Languages)
Click details.
Make sure it is United Kingdom ONLY. If US is also listed then you need to remove it. Make sure UK is set to default, hit apply and then remove. It will save a reboot.

Third Tab (Advanced)
English (United Kingdom)

I have just confirmed that should work.  I tested it out on my machine and it does change it..Download this CINFO from http://www.image.dk/~petermad/  to see what your country.sys is set to.  Its DOS so it will display what DOS should be displaying.

OK...

My regional setting are correct.

Running DATE @ the command prompt shows : 28/08/2004

Yet running Net Time shows : 08/28/2004

Can the 'Net Time' format be changed, or does that not matter ??

Thanks

Net time has always shown that format - nothing you can do about it. It doesn't use the regional settings it is something hard coded elsewhere - which means it will be in US format.
