Dates appearing in US format even though Regional settings are UK

I am currently using Crystal 2008. I create new reports and format the date to use Windows Short format.

When I access the report through a URL, the date format is displayed as mm/dd/yy even though the Regional settings on the server are dd/mm/yy.

I know that I could work around this by setting the dates to Custom format (dd/mm/yy), but I really don't want to do this unless I have to - I prefer to leave it flexible and use the local Windows format.

I notice that there used to be a bug in Crystal XI to do with dates displaying in US format, but this was addressed in a Hot Fix and I assume is therefore unlikely to still be in Crystal 2008.

In addition, other reports which were created in previous versions of Crystal Reports are displaying correctly, even though the formatting options are exactly the same.

Very confused - does anyone have any ideas as what the problem might be?
