Now II get a VASL window to open, but get an error message saying: VASSAL could not find the file 'C:\Users\Bill\Documents\boards\bd3'.
I renamed VASL-5.10.0-beta1 to VASL.vmod-5.10.0-beta1 to get that far.

That's not right. A file extension goes at the very end of the file name. Unfortunately for you, Windows is usually set by default to "helpfully" hide file extensions from the user. I don't know what version of Windows you're using, but in Windows 7 for example, you'd open any folder on your computer, look for the "Organize" menu, and choose "Folder and Search Options", then look in the "View" tab, and untick the box for "Hide extensions for known file types".

Then you'll be able to see full file names including their extensions. So based on what you posted above, you'll need to remove the .vmod that you inserted in the middle of the file name, then modify the characters after the period (which may well currently be .mod) to .vmod

I changed VASL-5.10.0-beta-1 to VASL.vmod-5.10.0-beta1 and now the imaging stuff went on like other modules, but when the VAL start window opens, I get an error message: VASSAL could not find the file 'C:\Users\Bill\Documents\boards\bd1'. Do I have to change my board directory form where it is now?

Where did you get VASL-5.10.0-beta1.mod? The download at
advancedsquadleader.net has the correct extension of .vmod.

Does that file exist?

As it says in the bible, "seek and ye shall find". After your help, and a bit of trial and error, I finally got it going right. Thx for the help.
