using System.Globalization;

CultureInfo myc = new CultureInfo("en-GB",true);
myc.DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern = "dd/mm/yyyy";                  
Application.CurrentCulture = myc;

MessageBox.Show(DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString());

Hi,

International Date and Time
You can use the session.lcid property to change the formatting of the date and time.

For example
<%session.lcid=2057%>
will set the date and time to UK format (DD/MM/YYYY instead of MM/DD/YYYY ) Here's a list of international locales. Bear in mind that setting these will also change currency formatting.

1033 General Unicode
33280 Binary Order
1027 Catalan

Try this,

CultureInfo ci = new CultureInfo("en-GB",true);
ci.DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern = "dd/mm/yyyy";
Application.CurrentCulture = ci;
