Currently all the dates throughout Web Tracks are in the format mm/dd/yyyy. Is it possible to change this to dd/mm/yyyy or better still, just use the regional settings for the computer?

Hi,

Web Tracks will use the regional settings on the computer where it is installed. 

Web Tracks runs using the Network Service account.  You can change this from the 'Region and Language' dialog in Windows...

You'll then need to use the 'Copy settings' in the Administrative so that system accounts use this format.

Thanks,

Hi,

My regional settings were already set correctly with the date at dd/mm/yyyy. I tried the copy settings button but that had no affect. I am running on Windows 8.1 and the dates continue to show as mm/dd/yyyy.

Hi,

I'm unable to reproduce this behavior.  When i change the date format in regional settings it shows correctly in the date selectors and on reports.  What culture is your computer running on?  You can explicitly set this for Web Tracks in the web.config file located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Gritware\Web Tracks\WebRoot.

The fourth line below the system.web tag you'll see a commented out line...

 <!--<globalization uiCulture="nl-NL" culture="nl-NL" />-->

Remove the comment tags and change this to the culture you're trying to use.  


You may need to restart IIS (or reboot) after copying the regional settings.
