To resolve this issue, the Windows Regional settings need to be modified and the Short Date format needs to be in MM/dd/yyyy format.
You can change the short date format for a specific user using the Regional Settings tool in Control Panel:
- Log on using the user account you want to configure.
- Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional Settings.
- On the Date tab, click the date format you want to use in the Short date style box, and then click OK.
- Log off Windows, and then log on to Windows again to save the setting.
