Thank you to everyone who participated in the beta. The following instructions are here to ensure a smooth transition from the beta build to the retail.

1.) Go to Add/Remove Programs under Control Panel/Programs, and uninstall the Dawn of Fantasy program.
2.) Go to your user directory (C:\Users\Your User Name Here) with 'Show Hidden Files and Folders' enabled (see here (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-see-hidden-files-in-windows/) for details), the folder AppData should appear.
3.) Navigate from your user directory to AppData, and then to Local. For more instruction, see:

Windows Vista: http://techqa.wordpress.com/2008/08/24/appdata-folder-in-windows-vista/

4.) There should be a folder named DoFUpdater there, delete it.
5) Install the purchased copy of Dawn of Fantasy, either from the cd or the digital download.

You are now ready to play the retail version of Dawn of Fantasy. :)

Thanks again for your help throughout the beta period, and we hope you enjoy the retail version!

Beautiful, just what I needed to know.

Edit: For anyone using XP the file tree is a little different. With Hidden folders marked as shown you go: C:\Users\"Your User Name Here"\Local settings\Application Data\DoFUpdater
