Pool of Radiance Uninstall Bug

I swore I wouldn't do news again, but this warrants an exception:

It's not often when the Adrenaline Vault feels the need to put out a warning, but a newly discovered "bug" in Ubi Soft's just released Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor compels us to act.

We have uncovered a probable bug in the installation program for PoR that could wipe out a user's Windows 9x system files during the uninstallation process.

During our installation of PoR, the install program locked up the computer, forcing a reboot. After this, the PoR installation program would only give the option to uninstall the game; at this time, the program also wiped out our Win98 SE system files and would not reinstall the game.

A further bug was uncovered in the installation program that prevents the user from installing to any directory other than the default.

Update: Ubi Soft has been made aware of this problem and of others users are reporting; and that their QA team is looking into it. The company has stated to us that they will stand by Pool of Radiance 100% and patch the game as much as necessary to meet consumers' expectations. Ubi Soft also expressed regret at the problems users have been having.

So before you try uninstalling Pool of Radiance, make sure you wait for the patch from Ubi-Soft.
