    Extremely slow application response becuase of regional format


    We have legacy MFC based desktop application, our application is loading configurations/settings from a file, floating points are either comma or decimal separated.

    Our application was running quite nicely on Windows 10 until we updated to 1903 Build. Application takes a lot of time(sometime 2 minutes, if everything works fine then same application takes 3-5 seconds) at startup to load configuration/settings file & overall application behavior is also very slow.
    we tried different ways to solve the issue. At the end we found out that regional format in Windows 10 is making trouble with European languages (English-Finland, English-German etc), we concluded based on our different combinations of display language and regional format. [The following is the workaround to solve the issue]


    *************
    -> If display language of windows 10 is English other than English (United States) or English (United kingdom) then regional format should be English (United states) or English (United Kingdom). [English (World) also works]

    -> For other languages, display language & regional format should match with each other. For example, if German is selected as display language, German should be selected in regional format.

    -> English united states & English(World) as regional format always work irrespective of display language.
    ****************
    Anyone else having similar kind of issue? What would be the possible fix for this issue? Is this issue related to default encoding of files to UTF-8 encoding in Windows 10?

    Is it possible that some language packs are incomplete? especially European English language packs.


    :)

    Changing Time Format

    Hi Mary,

    There's a possibility that the set up time format in your computer Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) is military time. To have this checked, you can try to reset the time of your computer through Control Panel. See the steps below on how to do
    so:

    • Open Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region >
      Change date, time, or number formats. This would open the
      Region
      window.
    • From there, click on Additional settings at the bottom part. It will open the Customize Format.
    • Click Reset; then, OK.

    The steps should work; however, if not, we suggest that you contact manufacturer and have the BIOS time checked.

    Let us know what happens after doing the suggestions .
