Thus spake LED:
> I have two computers – a Samsung R730 laptop, 3 GB RAM, Windows 7 (32
> bit) and an Acer X1935 desktop, 6 GB RAM, Windows 7 (64 bit).  Vassal
> has been downloaded separately to each.
> The Acer runs the program but Vassal will not run on the laptop.  The
> icon is on the desktop, the 'busy' wheel spins for a few seconds but
> nothing happens.  Right-clicking on the icon to try and open the file
> has the same effect, as does trying to start it from the Program Files
> folder.
> AVG antivirus was temporarily disabled – no change.
> Any suggestions, please, about running the program on the laptop?
