Wrong @ExecutionTime format in SSRS 2012

We have just installed SQL Server Reporting Services Service 2012(RTM) on SharePoint Server 2010 SP1 according to these instructions http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh231687(SQL.110).aspx SSRS services are running as a SharePoint service and it works like a charm except;

The problem is SSRS shows the @ExecutionTime and date format as MM/DD/YYYY although it should be DD/MM/YYYY

I have tried some troubleshooting steps;
1) Set regional settings of the Windows Server 2008 R2(SharePoint) to DD/MM/YYYY format.
2) Set the default language of the report to en-GB language.

Unfortunately they didn't work!

Is there any way to change reporting services to DD/MM/YYYY format?

Cheers

The default value for the Language property in the SSRS reports is "en-US".  That's why the dates are shown in US format.  To change this, you need to modify that property to your preferences.  In my case that could be "nl-BE" (stands for Dutch-Belgium), then I get DD/MM/YYYY.

But apparently you tried that already (sorry, was a bit too fast).

There are a couple of other places that I can think of:
  o the site settings
  o the user settings (on Sharepoint)

BTW: what exactly did you modify for your point 2?

Thanks ValentinoV, I' ve tried to change the regional settings on user settings and site settings but it's the same...

In second step I set the default language of reports to 'en-GB'

What do you mean with "default language of reports"?  Are you referring to the Language property in the report itself, or something differently?
