Thus spake LED:
> Vassal 3.2.7 will not start when the desktop icon is clicked.  The
> 'busy' wheel appears for a few seconds, then disappears.  The same
> happens whatever method is used to start the program – trying through
> Administrator, going directly to the Program Files location, etc.  The
> same happens with Vassal 3.2.8.
> I previously posted this query through the General Discussions page (not
> realising that there was a Technical Support page as this was my first
> post to Vassal) and received a prompt reply from 'Uckelman'.  This gave
> a link to a page about checking Java.
> The laptop had Java versions 6 and 7 installed.  Version 6 was removed.

Here's your problem. It looks like something is preventing VASSAL from
connecting to a local socket. Are you running a local firewall or
antivirus program which blocks connections to the loopback device?
