Hi,

If I select my correct regional setting (UK) from the
english United States setting then I lose the day name off
which is really annoying me. Anyone got any ideas to get a
full listing.

Eg English (United States) long date style: Tuesday, April
20, 2004

English (United Kingdon) long date style: 20 April 2004

Any ideas on how I can edit this??

Thanks

Using a Registry Editor such as PHM RegEdit
(http://www.phm.lu/Products/PocketPC/RegEdit/)
- Go to \HKLM\nls\overrides
- select SLDte (add "new string value" if not exist)
- change the value data to dddd, d MMMM yyyy
- soft reset the device

Usual caveats apply - be careful when editing the Registry,
make a Backup prior to..., don't blame me etc.

HTH,
