I did get this error as well. When I changed the for mat of the date to
correspond the format on my system, I didn't get any errors.

One thing that you could do is change the ShortDateFormat Delphi variable
(look in the help for more information), to reflect the date format in the
string to perform this operation and when completed restore it to what it
was before.
