(MC) Support Tip: License showing invalid expiration date in MC
Here comes a support tip that can be helpful for people in coutries with a local calendar that is showing a different date as the Gregorian calendar.
You may run into the issue where the MC license is showing invalid expiration dates in MC:
By default, MC service is started not using the current logged on user account but SYSTEM account, the issue is caused because the SYSTEM account is somehow not using Gregorian calendar formats. To fix the issue, you need to go to Control Panel->Region->Administrative, and click the "Copy settings" button:
Check under "Welcome Screen" section to see if the format is truely not set to English:
Now first make sure the format for current user is English, if it is not, you can go to the formats tab and change it:
Now you can check the checkbox "Welcome screen and system accounts" under "Copy your current settings to" section, and notice that the format for SYSTEM account is now changed to English:
Click OK to apply the change and restart your machine, you should find the invalid dates now valid.
Hope it helps.
