How to ensure users have the desired regional settings

Regional settings such as currency, date/time format, and numbers are user profile-based.
In a Terminal Server/Citrix environment, users from different regions may want to retain their client-side regional settings when logging on to the server.
To set up the correct regional settings, log on to the Citrix server, select Start > Control Panel > Regional Settings. Set the correct setting and log off so the setting is written to the user’s profile.

Method 1
This method sets the users’ regional options at logon by script:

1. Create global groups based upon the users’ desired regional setting.
2. Create a test user for each global group.
3. Log on to the Citrix server with that test user and make appropriate changes within the regional options.
4. Export the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International.
5. Create a script (How to use Regini.exe to modify HKEY_CURRENT_USER) and call it Usrlogon.cmd.
6. When users log on to the Citrix server, they will inherit the regional settings based upon their group membership.
