Insider build breaks calendars in my locale (lv-LV) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I got an insider build on a virtual machine: 15048.rs2_release.170228-1522
    Short week name in my locale Latvian(lv-LV) got extended from 2 symbols to 7 symbols.

    As a result calendars in MS ACCESS are broken. http://prnt.sc/ek6h0f
    Taskbar calendar is not affected by this change. http://prnt.sc/ek6h41

    Where to report this problem?
    How to make sure that it doesn't get out of insider build?
    Or at least how to override this so that MS ACCESS application doesn't get broken?

    Edit:

    Steps to reproduce on any updated insider build:

    Control Panel -> Clock, Language, and Region -> Change date, time, or number formats
    Change Format to Latvian (Latvia)

    Result - MS Access date control is 2 times wider than normal

    To reproduce without MS ACCESS needs additional step:

    Control Panel -> Clock, Language, and Region -> Change date, time, or number formats -> Additional settings... -> Date(tab)

    Change Short date from "dd.MM.yyyy" to "ddd, dd.MM.yyyy"

    Result - taskbar date contains 7 symbol shortened weekday name

  • Hello Zigmunds,

    We suspect that this problem has been solved on later builds as we weren't able to repro it with recent builds.

    Please try to update your version and let us know if the problem persists.

    Thanks,

    Michal [MSFT]

  • Just so you know, I did bring this to the attention of the Access Dev Team (2017-03-15).  So at least they are aware of the issue, but I have no clue what is being done about it.
