Screenshot of error message with unreadable text

When uninstalling LOdev under Windows XP I got the attached error message.

This message requires the user to take action based on an unreadable message.

I am aware this is a Windows XP problem but XP still has more than 30% users worldwide...

This is related to bugs #58144 and #58494 which were dismissed as WONTFIX.

If other NSIS based uninstallers for other programs (e.g. Zotero) show correct messages how can TDF ignore this problem?

Unreadable message causes PC to reboot

After I closed Firefox I proceeded with uninstall and got the attached message. Answering "Yes" causes the PC to reboot without further warning (i.e. without time to save any open files)

This is the dialog I mentioned in

I hope this bug is not dismissed as WONTFIX.

LO installer is not NSIS-based.
