A software rego .ini file is importing a date ( 2050 ) as 1950, which makes the software unregistered.

 

Can you think of where in the setup of the PC that might be causing this?

 

Have checked in Customise Format – Calendar & set to 1952 and 2051 as above, still importing as 1950.

Have re-booted, still no success.

Any suggestions?

Remember, this is not an excel or word file, it is an ini file for software registration.

Have you been into the Control Panel settings and under Region and Language settings/Additional Settings?  In there is a setting for "when a two-digit year is entered to interpret it as a year between" and the dates on my Win 7 PC have 1930-2029.
