I'm afraid I don't follow you here. Does this mean you went into the
Control Panel, Programs and Features, found VASSAL in the list,
right-click and chose Uninstall?

This is the intended behavior when running the VASSAL installer and
choosing the Standard option (it looks to find all previous versions of
VASSAL, then runs the uninstaller for each of them).

Two options: 

1. Use the __Custom__ option when prompted during the VASSAL installer

2. Don't use the Windows installer at all! Download the ZIP bundle from
this page[1], and simply extract the contents to wherever you would like
to keep the application. It will happily run from anywhere, and you can
manually make a shortcut if desired.
