Change date format for all profiles on local PC
Posted on 2010-08-24
How do I change the date format on all profiles on pc's in my network? I can make the change in the registry and write a logon script to change it once the user logs on, but I want this to apply without waiting for all users to logon to the local pc. For instance, I have users 1, 2, and 3 working on PC X. If user 1 logs on, the date and time should change for all users (2 and 3).
Reason for this is, I am running a script (encrypted) as users Y (domain admin) on all PC's. The encrypted tool creates a profile for user Y when any user logs on. So with the domain user loged on, it uses the settings (date and time) from user Y (account used to run the script), causing trouble in some applications that we run.
Any idea how I can change the date and time format for all profiles regardless of who logs on? Using Server 2003 and XP on workstations. Date format should be, long date: dd MMM yyyy short date: dd/MM/yyyy
