I need to change the Date format in regional settings in my project using VB.Net 2008.
I wrote the following code

        Dim TmpDateFormat As System.Globalization.CultureInfo
        TmpDateFormat = New System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US")
        TmpDateFormat.DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern = "dd-MM-yyyy"
        System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = TmpDateFormat

When I run this code there is no error. But  Date format not changed in regional setting.

Help me to correct my code.
Thanks and Regards
