Can't set a release date with a day number higher than 12

Hi,

First of all, I'm French, using a French-localized computer, and I'm using IE7.
So I'm not able to set a release date with a day number higher than 12, it always fails:

When I enter 13/10/2007, I get the following error: "Release Date must be a valid date after Dec 31, 1752"
When I enter 10/13/2007, I get the following error: "Invalid date value (must be entered as mm/dd/yyyy). Release Date must be a valid date today or earlier"

For information:
When I enter 12/10/2007, it works and it is displayed as "oct. 12 2007"
When I enter 10/12/2006, it works and it is displayed as "déc. 10 2006"


It seems that the invoked code is messing up with localized dates: somewhere, it thinks the first number is a month when it should not.
Is there a workaround for this? Thank you.

I get the exact same problem.

My locale is .au, by the way.

Locale problems here as well. I can't create any releases caused by this bug.

When I input 10/15/2007, CodePlex tells me: "Invalid date value (must be entered as mm/dd/yyyy). Release Date must be a valid date today or earlier. Release Date must be a valid date after Dec 31, 1752."

When I input 15/10/2007, CodePlex tells me: "Release Date must be a valid date after Dec 31, 1752."

My locale is .da.

You can fix this by changing your locale in Internet Explorer to .en. Works but it's not a very good solution. Please fix the bug CodePlex.

Thank you for the tip, I tried to change the Windows locale but I forgot about the IE one. It works :)

Could someone convert this to a work item?

I've created a post which "smells" like it Release Date verification error.
