A Registry Set Value action in EM Policy can be used to set the Windows OS Time format to 24 Hrs at logon using;
Registry Key: HKCU\Control Panel\International\
Value Name: sTimeFormat Value
Value Type: REG_SZ
Value Data: HH:mm:ss
Changing just this single value causes Environment Manager Desktop Settings to also perform a Preshell refresh of the locale at logon and alter the value to hh:mm:ss
- Setting sTime and sTimeFormat independently in the registry can result in conflicting values.
- Setting only one value in the registry might not change the time as it appears in applications, because an application can read either sTime or sTimeFormat.
- Setting iTime determines whether time is displayed with a 12-hour or 24-hour clock format.
Create 3 Registry set value actions to set all 3 related values together, i.e for 24 Hr format ;
- iTime = 1
- sTime = :
- sTimeFormat = HH:mm:ss
