Windows 10 and Java

Postby OldRebel » January 31st, 2019, 5:14 pm

I have a new laptop with Windows 10.
- Will current Vassal Engine work with Windows 10?
- Is Java required?
- is a specific revision of Java required to work with Vassal?
Thanks in advance for any help.

As per my knowledge vassal is the open source boardgame engine which is availabale on any OS like macos,windows but it required the java JRE. So I think you have to install this so that you can enjoy it.
I have done my engineering in computer science .
Now working in java domain and also interested in making the android developement

OldRebel I have windows10 and Java 8 installed the app works although I just experienced a problem with saving
a module I was working on.
specifically when I try to save the module to the Vassal folder Win10 denies me and asks to contact the administrator for the privileges...I can only presume that the Vassal folder created by the .exe is a domain and I can't save there.

Sounds an awful lot like you are storing your work-in-progress module in the VASSAL folder itself (or a subfolder of it), which is probably in C:\Program Files.

Don't do that. Modules belong in your home directory.

Thanks JoelCFC25

I had the module folder in the home directory and it worked fine...I guess I had a brain fart.
All is in its proper spot now.
Thanks Again
