The install of 3.2.11 left the shortcut for Vassal pointed at the old
(Progam Files (x86)) path instead of updating to the 64-bit Program
Files path.

Uninstalling and reinstalling generated a correct shortcut.

Custom install. I still have 3.1.20 installed as well as the latest
3.2.x (and of course, I occasionally have testing versions installed),
so I always go custom to manage which versions are on the machine. This
has never had a problem (or at least, not *this* problem), but this last
time, the extension associations went away.
