Uncaught Exception Error on Mac

Postby niggapo » June 25th, 2018, 4:29 am

I was just opening Vassal when I got an "Uncaught Exception." I'm not sure how to solve this and the bug reporter told me to come here. Thanks in advance if you fix this issue!

What I was doing: I was trying to open VASSAL.

Model: MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
OS: macOS Sierra Version 10.12.6
CPU: 3.1 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB
Video: Intel Iris Plus Graphics 650 1536 MB
VASSAL: 3.2.17
Java: 9.0.1
Module: None, I just clicked Vassal.

I uploaded the errorLog onto a google drive folder. Here's the link: ... sp=sharing

Short version: downgrade to Java 8

Long answer: if you need Java 9 for other apps, you can download and manually unpack the files for Java 8, then update to find and use that older version instead of the system default.

Then sing with me: Roll on v4, so I can stop caring about Java AT ALL.
