Vassal not launching, says it needs java runtime environment

Pretty much just the title. Vassal was working fine a few days ago but I tried opening it today, and all that happens is a window pops up that says “this application requires a java runtime environment”, hitting the “OK” button or closing it just makes the forums pop up. Any idea how to fix it?

Check your Antivirus…they sometimes decide Java is a threat and quarantine java.exe and/or javaw.exe. It’s a false positive, and can be safely recovered from quarantine.
