The DateTime.ParseExact have not any problem and the orginal problem comes from us thus you attention to String of Formatx
EXAMPLE: the string format for "02/Dec/2007:14:15:40 -08:00" is
WRONG: dd/MMM/yyyy:hh:mm:ss zzz
RIGHT: dd/MMM/yyyy:HH:mm:ss zzz
Did you got the problem source! It comes from (hh) and because the hour is greater than 12 need the (HH). Ok, look at again to the StringFormat and debug it again ;-)
