Unparseable date

I set a DateTime constant, systemStartDate = 01/01/1970 00:00:01, in the application constants pane under resources. When I start the XAS server it falls over with an unparseable date error "1970-01-01T00:00:01". Anyone know what the problem is? I'm only comparing it with DateTimes, but the error occurs on system start and before I actually try to read the constant anyway.

Hi Martin,

The format of the DateTime constant is incorrectly stored by the Modeler (or incorrectly parsed by the XAS, depending on how you perceive it). The expected format is "yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss.SSS" (so with milliseconds). This will only fail in Development and Test mode, as in Acceptation and Production mode the constant value is specified in a configuration file. This is a bug, could you file this as a bug in MXDN?
