I bet you could do it. You'd have to first install Java onto the USB stick. Then put the VASSAL manual installation on. Edit the VASSAL.bat/sh file and change the 'java' command to point to the USB stick's Java installation.

It's been done actually. Do a search in the forum archives. You can even put Java on the stick for those odd computers that don't have it.

Followed Soft-Bugs instructions and figured it out.

Thanks!

Also, if you bundle both of those up in a .rar, you could make a nice bundle for windows users to play vassal.
