Change method

Regional Options in Control Panel links the sDate and sShortDate values. This ensures that the date separator and the date format are synchronized. For example:

sDate 

sShortDate 

Meaning

/

m/d/yy

6/5/69

Setting sTime and sTimeFormat independently in the registry can result in conflicting values. To repair these settings, use Regional Options in Control Panel.

Setting only one value in the registry might not change the date as it appears in applications, because an application can read either sDate or sShortDate.
