Just having a .vlog extension doesn't mean the file is actually a vassal
file.  Take a look at the content of the file by opening it with a
simple text editor (say, notepad on Windows).  You may be able to read
the contents, or spot something in there that gives you a clue about the

Vassal vlog files are actually just zip files, and zip files begin with
"PK" as a signature.  If you see PK at the start, you can rename the
file to .zip and open it to see what's inside.  If it's a Vassal file
after all, you'll see a file called moduledata, and that will tell you
the name and version of the module it applies to.  Good luck!
