    Cast from string "27-06-2008" to type 'Date' is not valid


    I have a major problem, I have a working Asp.NET application running in Win2003. This setup is working perfectly without any probelm.

    Now I have a new server with Win2003 R2 SP2 and I installed my asp application to this server and now I getting following error in all the pages which are having date fields. Eventhough I enter "27/06/2008" it gives me following error

    All my three servers are set to dd/MM/yyyy format in reginal settings with Indonesia as country. But the same application working fine in other server (same configuration).

    I've tried to set the date setting in regional setting to MM/dd/yyyy and I get the same error.

    This there any setting in OS, IIS or ASP.NET I should set to fix this problem?

    Dim dTgl AS Date
    dTgl = txtTgl.Text 'txtTgl is a textbox, this is the line that trigger the error.

    It is ok if I enter the date as "06/27/2008" but this is not the format we use here.

    As I mention above that this does not cause any problem in my old server. So I think there must be something in the OS or IIS setting.

    Are you using ASP.NET 2.0 or earlier version? If you are using 2.0, then there is no class called Date. It is DateTime only.

    gokild: kslchiang is using Visual Basic, which does have a Date data type.

    kslchiang: I am not able to reproduce the behavior you describe. My system's date format is set to M/d/yyyy; if I run the following code, I get the error you describe:

    Dim dTgl AS Date = "27/06/2008"

    If I change my system's date format to d/M/yyyy, the code runs without error. Have you tried doing an iisreset or rebooting after changing your system's date format?
