    using System.Globalization;
    using System.Threading;
    DateTime dt = DateTime.Now;
    Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("en-US");//Set CurrentCulture to english U.S
    Console.WriteLine(dt.ToString("d"));//Get date

    Or you can modify registry entries as follows:
    using Microsoft.Win32;
    RegistryKey objRegKey = Registry.CurrentUser.OpenSubKey(@"Control Panel\Desktop", true);
    string[] szLang = { "en-ZA" };
    objRegKey.SetValue("PreferredUILanguagesPending", szLang, RegistryValueKind.MultiString);//REG_MULTI_SZ
    Please go through this article for more details:
    Hope it helps.

    To get default regional and language setting, you need to hit to control panel, Just use System.globalization namespace, it will return the system settings.
    see below snippet
    using System;
    using System.Globalization;

    public class Example
    public static void Main()
    CultureInfo culture = CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture;
    Console.WriteLine("The current UI culture is {0} [{1}]",
    culture.NativeName, culture.Name);
    // The example displays output like the following:
    // The current UI culture is English (United States) [en-US]

    in above code you will all information about current CurrentCulture. you can set new culture using code also.
