Fixing Domino regional date/time when running as a service

Fixing Domino date/times when running as a service

When running a domino server as a user (i.e. as an application), the international settings for date/time etc come from the Windows user regional settings.

However, when running the same server as a windows service, the region settings come from the registry and there is no way to change them from the user interface.

By default those region settings are US.

If you wish to change them then, you need to do the following:
  1. Login as a user with administrator rights
  2. Change the current logged in user settings to those that you want
  3. Start regedit.exe
  4. Manually copy all of the different settings:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/International
HKEY_USERS/.DEFAULT/Control Panel/International

It is easier with a large screen so both the source and the destination are on the screen at the same time.
