I am new to vassal. Even though it works perfectly on a mac, the case is
not the same on my pc. As soon as it starts an 'uncaught exception' new
window opens with an internal error message every single time, not
allowing me to proceed any further. My specs are the following: 

- Model HPE-030be
- Operating System WIndows 7 Home Premium
- CPU Intel (R) Core i7 CPU 860 at 2.80GHz 2.80GHz
- Memory 8,00 GB
- Video Card Nvidia GeForce GTX260
- Vassal version. 3.2.2 windows version
- Java version. 1.7.0_11
- Exactly what steps are required to reproduce your problem: simply
turning vassal on. I never had it installed on this pc nor used it in
the past. It simply crashes immediately, giving the error message I just
mentioned in another window entitled 'uncaught exception'. 

Following the advice on this thread viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5880[1] I
deleted the previous versions of Java on my pc. It now only has the one
stated above. Still, the problem remains unresolved.

The log of the window is as follows:

Thank you in advance for your kind help, looking forward to be able to
use it on my desktop.
