I would like to run some sensor software using Wine and serial port. However, this SW strictly requires exact date/time settings to work correctly.

I created a new account in KDE (running Kubuntu 13.04) and set the locale to US English. However, although I deleted .wine folder, Wine still seems to use Czech locale or at least some settings. As I do not want to damage my default system locale settings, I run the program using:

LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 wine program.exe

But the problem with date/time format remains. I need dd/mm/yy and time in hh:mm:ss - the same as uses Windows to make the program work properly.

is it possible?
