Atlantic Wall 2 (ver 2)

AW 2 new version

was playing AW2_2 (atlantic wall by decision games) and and updated it to AW2_5 so I have the current version. but it wouldnt open
there are a number of scenarios i can play , but it wont open the 1st one for me (which is the campaign file) which I was playing on the earlier Version
anyway, I removed all the version 2 stuff, removed vassal, shut off my computer reinstalled vassal and then unzipped AW2_5 but it still just sits like it is trying to load the scenario forever

any thoughts on how to clear that out so it lets me open the campaign ??
I have never had this issue in all my years of using vassal.
