I am moving a copy of an ASP.net web application running on a windows server 2003 box to a Windows 7 Laptop.
On the win server 2003 box the locale was set to United States and shortdate format was M/DD/YYYY. On the Windows 7 machine it is DD/MM/YYYY which is breaking the application.
I have tried changing all the locale settings under controlpanel->regions to United States and rebooting with no luck. I also tried explcitly setting the shortdate format to M/DD/YYYY under the region settings but the web application seems to ignore it.
How can I change the Windows 7 shortdate format so an ASP.net application will recognize it ?
