    For the life of me I can't work out how to configure NOD32 to display its date in the correct Australian DD/MM/YY format.

    It still shows dates in MM/DD/YY format even everything looks right in Windows XP [Control Panel] [Regional Options].


    Anyone? o_O

    Hmm, I hope not.

    Or at least that there is an Australian version.

    Where are you looking at the date?

    Mine (also in Oz) shows dates in logs as dd/mm/yyyy format but in the Update and Quarantine boxes it is mm/dd/yyyy format. Go figure! :doubt:

    I work at Eset and everybody's date in the 'update' window here displays as mm/dd/yyyy! Strange. I asked one of the developers why this occurs and he wasn't sure... it should be linked to however your system displays dates. So there seems to be a little glitch here somewhere BUT this is hardly the most important issue for our developers to be concerned with at the moment. I'm sure a fix will come about in the fullness of time.

    Ummm..... well the programmers are all Slovakian and I'm English. As I said, it's not clear why this glitch has occurred. I agree, it makes reading the Update window slightly confusing but, as I said before, it's not possibly the most important issue right at this moment. I will badger somebody to try and rectify this however.

    Hi folks,

    A fix has been done to make the 'update' window's date appear as dd/mm/yyyy. It will arrive with the next programme update.... in the non-specific, very near future!

    Regards,
    Bandicoot. :D

    Hi Pepito,

    It's being tested in the beta version at the moment. I've got this new version and the date thing is fine now. It's difficult to get a specific date on these things sometimes but I guess it will be available in the next few weeks, OK? There's a few other nice little modifications to the programme too.... hold on a little longer Pepito................ eh eh!

    Bandicoot. :D

    Well it's a cat and mouse game here at Eset. Some days it's just dog eat dog, other days, everyone's monkee-ing around. Me?..... I like a bit of horse play, brightens the day up. What was the question again, Pepito.......?

    Hi Pepito,

    I've just spoken to the developer re. the date format, and he feels that he's fixed it in the beta version. Before I go and 'rough him up a bit' for not doing his job properly, can you confirm that your date format is still wacky and not showing dd/mm/yyyy......?

    There is still a problem for Australian/New Zealand users setting up Scheduled Scans, etc.... I believe, due to an issue with the time zones that the aforementioned developer is working on at present.

    Cheers. Bandicoot. :)

    Thank you Mr. Spear... nice to be back. Had to return to Blighty a few weeks ago....grrrrr!!! (that's England to our worldwide friends) then on holiday last week. I need to catch up a bit!!

    So, Mr. Spear, are you still experiencing this incorrect date format issue? My boy here at Eset reckons he's sorted it. What do you think?

    Sir Bandi of Coot. :D

    Pepito.... and anybody else from the Oz and Kiwi regions.....

    I gave my developer pal a good thrashing, which I'm sure he will appreciate in time, once he gets out of hospital of course. I think I might have the answer to this date format problem however..... I hope. One thing my developer managed to say, with some difficulty it's true, is that NOD is using the system prefs for the format as opposed to the user prefs which you can modify how you wish. So, I think, if an operating system has been installed with USA default prefs, then this may cause the different date format (our American chums like to put the Month before the Day for some bizarre reason).

    Soooooooo....... if you jump in your PC's control panel > Date,Time, Language, and Regional Options > Regional and Language Options > click the Advanced tab and near the bottom of the panel is "Apply all settings to the current user account and to the default user profile".... check that box, click OK, reboot and with any luck..... your date format will read correctly.

    Right, now maybe I should just go and see if the boy has regained consciousness yet.

    Bandicoot. :D
