Default DateTime Problem

I'm using the following code to pull the current date in mm/dd/yyyy format:
Dim dtCurrDate As DateTime = DateTime.Now 'Assign current date

On the test server, 03/12/2008 11:25:50 AM is returned, and the date is formatted properly (mm/dd/yyyy). But on the web server, 3/12/2008 11:25:50 AM is returned and the date is not formatted properly (m/dd/yyyy). My Network Administrator made sure to change the date format on the server from m/dd/yyyy to mm/dd/yyyy, but it didn't fix the problem when I re-loaded the page. Both servers are running ASP.NET 2.0. What could be causing this problem?

I'm not sure exactly, but is it possible that this is the result of a configuration setting in .NET? There might be a master date format that was configured when .NET was installed. At the time (no pun intended) the server was configured with the undesirable datetime format. Despite changing the server setting, the format remains the same because of the .NET configuration. I could be completely wrong of course.

You might start by comparing the framework config files between your two servers.
