Windows XP SP3 change to Date/Time format
I log all logins in to a text file purely to make it easier on myself when I need to find where someone has logged in. I didn't notice the change until a few days afterwards and it took me a few days to work out exactly what I had done that made this change - I'm still not sure WHY it made this change.
To see an example of the format of the text file I log to please see the code snippet below;
The first example here is with SP3 installed;
Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
msgbox(ucase(WshNetwork.ComputerName) & " " & lcase(WshNetwork.UserName) & " " & WeekdayName(Weekday(Date)) & " " & Date & " " & Time)
This example here is after uninstalling SP3;
mypc myusername Thursday 7/10/2008 1:00:35 PM
So SP3 seems to americanize the date and time?
mypc myusername Thursday 10/07/2008 13:19:20
I have no idea why this change happened, as far as I can tell there were no changes at all to Regional/Locale options and I don't see reference in the SP3 notes for such a change either.
I was looking to deploy SP3 this summer with SCCM (SMS Successor for those that are not aware) but I am not happy about this change.
Anyone have any ideas? or anyone noticed any other anomalies with SP3?
