So, I downloaded and installed this version of Vassal.  Uninstalled all
the others but still nothing.  I'm running it as admin, have even tried
compatibility mode set to XP, I've allowed it through my firewall and
I'm definately sure I only have Java 7 64bit.  Also, I'm not getting
this "launch4j" folder anymore... good or bad?

Also, may attmept with the older version of Vassal didnt work either.
