How to use US date format on schedule?

When schedule a recurring instance and I'm prompted for the Start and End dates, they are formatted in the European date format.

How can I have it default to and always use the US date format?

David,

I presume all your users are also in the US and their Regional Options (via the Control Panel) is set to the US (English (United States)) in the drop down.

Also, does the value of the the [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Business Objects\Suite 11.5\default\Shared\General\Setup\Languages\Available\en] branch in the registry look as below?

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Business Objects\Suite 11.5\default\Shared\General\Setup\Languages\Available\en]
"BOShortName"="EN"
"Country"="US"
"lcid"="1033"
"name"="English"
"LG_iso639A2"="en"
"LG_LocSuffix"="en"
"LG_CodePage"="0"

Best,

Srinivas
