Thanks, I'll try later

I have installed Java 1.7 CPU 79 and attempted to run Vassal under this
version to see if it made a difference but no luck. (I don't want to
uninstall 8).  A web search said you should be able to open a shell and
set the PATH & JAVA_HOME env variables to run an application under an
older version of Java.  "java -version" indeed flags the older version
but when Vassal.exe is run in the shell, it still uses Java 8 (as
evidenced by the absolute path in the error log).

Where does Vassal pick up the Java path??  Does it get it from the
symlinks at C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath??
