AM & PM for Default users - save the 6 next lines in a AMPMDef.reg :
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\International]
"s1159"=""
"s2359"=""

AM & PM for Current user - save the 6 next lines in AMPMCur.reg :
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International]
"s1159"=""
"s2359"=""

Run the next command to apply the new settings :
regedit /s AMPMDef.reg
or
regedit /s AMPMCur.reg

Maybe you need to reboot.
I can't test more now. Im not on my own computer.

You can open Control Panel / Regional Settings / Time
and check after applying the .reg file. The settings will change.

You are right.
I only had Win NT4 to do the job.
