Uninstall and reinstall, but *don't* launch from the installer at the
end of the install. Do you have the same problem then?

This could happen because something is holding open a file inside lib.
What files are in the VASSAL install folder when this happens?

Please find the most recent version which doesn't have these problems
for you. I would be very surprised if that's 3.2.0. You can find the
