How to change the date format in a regional setting

You need to create an ADM file and import it into a Group Policy object. You'll need to experiment a bit to ensure that the ADM file is doing what you need it to do, but it will probably look something like this:

----- date.adm ----- 
class user 
category "regional settings" 
policy "Change date format" 
keyname "control panel\international" 
part "change to:" edittext 
valuename "sShortDate" 
default "dd/mm/yyyy" 
end part 
end policy 
end category 
----- date.adm -----
