wine is ignoring the registry key sShortDate

Post by nagybal » Tue Dec 03, 2019 4:08 am

Dear All!

Host: Elementary OS
Wine is ignoring if I set the key

Code: Select all

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International\sShortDate
to
dd. MM. yyyy.
The emulated application still displays
12.2.2019 (Today we have the 2nd of December)
instead. Any ideas?

ps: the language of the host OS is set to United States English

I did find a workaround. If I start wine using the prefix below. The date displays just fine.

Code: Select all

LC_ALL=en_GB.UTF-8 wine xyz.exe
What do I need to change to get things back to I am used to? :-)
