Force IUSR_ to use regional settings

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
Is there any way to force IIS to the regional settings for ASP applications? I see a fix here for Server 2000:


but I am running Server 2003 and the registry settings are different.

The issue is that using Date() or Now() methods currently give unpredictable results whereas they worked fine before on NT 4.0.

I realize that I can get around this via code or by putting an LCID code on each page, but I was hoping to avoid doing so.

Thank you,
