In the .NET Framework 4.0 or earlier, you have to set the culture for each thread individually. At the very least, this meant setting the CurrentThread object's CurrentCulture and CurrentUICulture properties. In the .NET Framework 4.5, you can do it in just two lines of code for every thread in your application, using the CultureInfo object.
The syntax is a little "un-obvious": You must first instantiate a CultureInfo object, passing a culture code. You then pass that object to a static method called DefaultThreadCurrentCulture, also on the CultureInfo object.
Typical code looks like this:
Dim ci As CultureInfo
ci = New CultureInfo("en-CA")
CultureInfo.DefaultThreadCurrentCulture = ci
which sets the culture code for all threads to English/Canadian.
