I am configuring a terminal services server and I need to make sure that all of the users that log in to the server have the clock set to 24 hour time format.  I have already tried to two different ways:

1. I logged in as USER1 and set my clock to be 24 hour time.  I logged out and logged back in as USER2.  I then copied the USER1 profile to the default user profile.  If I log in as a new user (USER3) the clock is still at 12 hour time format.

2.  I changed the registry key HKEY_USERS/.DEFAULT/Control Panel/International/stimeformat  to be HH.mm.ss tt.

Neither of these worked.

Any other ideas?

My suggestion is that you integrate the localization into the logon script.
