Changing Date Format from US to Australian

Previous topic Next topic  

Problems with dates being formatted in US mm/dd/yyyy style are a known issue with new installations of Windows 7 e.g. buying a new computer with Windows 7 pre-installed or upgrading to Windows 7 from XP or Vista.

If you open Regional and Language Options from the control panel (the "globe" icon) and reselect your locale it will likely solve the problem.

1.Open Control Panel from the Windows Start button
2.Select Regional and Language Options
3.Under Format pick anything else. (eg: English (New Zealand)
4.Press Apply
5.Under Format pick your desired locale (eg: English (Australia))
6.Press OK

Windows stores duplicate locale "name"s and "LCID"s... Re-running intl.cpl (the applet behind the "Regional and Language Options" icon in Control Panel) gets them back in-sync.
