Change in date format.

Hi,

My asp pages that display data from databases have suddenly changed the date
format they display from UK to US, i.e. 11/17/2001 for 17th Nov 2003.

I have checked on the win2k sp3 server that they run on, and the date/time
zone is GMT UK and also the regional settings are correct for the UK.

The server has been patched in the last couple of weeks, but I'm not sure
which patches as various engineers have access to it. However, does anybody
know why this should happen when all the date/time settings are correct for
the UK format?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

My host had a similar problem with my pages. Immediatly after a Windows
Update was applied, regional settings all appeared to be in order yet my
(and only my) pages displayed in US format. I don't know if a reason or
solution was ever found because I just set @LCID=2057 at the start of my
pages now.

Have a look at:

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
