Regional Settings changes do not appear to affect Informed Print messages

Blog Post created by Lindsay Lamb on Dec 19, 2013

After changing the Regional Settings for Currency, clients still receive Informed Print messages with the original format. How can I change Informed Print messages to use a different currency format?


The Pharos services by default run as LocalSystem. This account uses the Default User profile, so changes made while logged in as another user will not affect the services. The Default User profile can be adjusted by following these steps in the Regional and Language Options control panel applet, after you have made the required changes:


  • For Windows 2003 Server:
    1. Select the Adminstrative tab.
    2. Enable the 'Apply all settings...' checkbox and click OK.
    3. Restart the Pharos Print Server service.
  • For Windows 2008 Server:
    1. Select the Administrative tab.
    2. Click 'Copy to Reserved Accounts'.
    3. Enable the checkbox for System Accounts and click OK.
    4. Restart the Pharos Print Server service.
