Please ignore this patch. On Windows XP and 7 alike Microsoft's xcopy 
does say:

| /D:j-m-a Copie les fichiers modifiés à partir de la date spécifiée

But on both systems it refuses a date of 21-11-2013 but accepts 
11-21-2013. So once more the Microsoft documentation is wrong.

c:\Users\win7admin\Documents> xcopy /D:21-11-2013 *.* tmp
Paramètre non valide - /D:21-11-2013

c:\Users\win7admin\Documents> xcopy /D:21-11-2013 *.* tmp
1 fichier(s) copié(s)

           If it stinks, it's chemistry. If it moves, it's biology.
                  If it does not work, it's computer science.
