Registry Value for System Locale in Vista

Under Control Panel
 | Clock Language
 | Regional and Language Options
 | Administrative Tab
 |  Change System Locale ...

Where in the registry is this value stored?

HKCU/Control Panel/International/Locale is not the place, I have the machine set to Korean but this key still reflects 0409 for English.

Also, can I change this value programmatically? VB6?

Hello

There's some code available over at http://vbnet.mvps.org/index.html?code/locale/setlocaleinfo.htm

Which may well do the trick, I think it's based around changing System Long and Short Date Formats however, looking at the procedures, I am sure you should be able to use this..?

Not really, this has to do with date formatting.

The setting I am looking for affects how the OS (Vista) handles non-unicode programs.

This link showed me how to set the value.

This code will open the control panel to the setting I need to detect.

But how do I detect it through programming?
Call Shell("rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL intl.cpl,,2", vbNormalFocus)

Open in new window

To detect the value, use GetLocaleInfo
