Managing two versions of vassal and module, respectively

Postby Scott » October 15th, 2020, 12:24 am

I am running Windows 10 and custom installed VASSAL 3.4.3 to its own folder and kept installed version 3.2.17. I need to test the updated VSQL module v4.3.1 with VASSAL v3.4.3. I would also like to keep the stable VASSAL v3.2.17 and VSQL v4.2.2 to continue playing games.

The trouble is both VASSAL programs point to the same VSQL module. Changing the module in one also changes it in the other. Removing the module in one also remove it in the other version of VASSAL.

How does one add a module to one version of VASSAL and a different version of the module to a the old version of VASSAL?

I looking in the forums but didn't find an answer, any links or comments appreciated.

Thanks,

Scott

I recommend upgrading to 3.4.6, which is current. There have been quite
a few bug fixes since 3.4.3.

Give the modules different filenames.
