    On Windows Server 2008 you can find it:

    User Configuration\Preferences\Control Panel Settings\Regional Options

    Else you will need to do a reghack.

    CSE can be installed on XP SP2, you'll have to do the management of the GPOP from a vista or Windows 7 PC. All these settings will work on your XP SP2 machines. CSE GPOP also run fine from a 2003 domain

    I have about 250 client systems with xp, no access at the moment to win 7 or vista systems. I really want to roll out this solution as a gpo or a logon script. this would eliminate me going from system to system and changing any settings. The change is needed to facilitate an in house program which pulls the date from the system but expect it to be in the dd/mm/yyyy rather than the mm/dd/yyyy that the system currently gives. I read that this can be done through scripting but i don’t know how to code the solution. any further help is greatly appreciated. Thanks so far for the attempts.

    lets look at it another way: Are you really sure you want to deploy an application from a vendor/programmer who can't even properly handle different locales/time formats? That's crap programming if you ask me.
    if mm/dd/yyyy is the correct format for your country/region why change it to mm/dd/yyyy and confuse users, and possibly even create
    problems in other area's or applications.
    And, you wouldn't change your valuta notation from to $ or would you? (finance would probably lynch you! )

    Sims needs that format so.I'm not surprised! But I think you can do it using a registry setting and importing using startup script

    As said earlier, you could try a reghack to set the setting.
