Thanks for reply. Indeed very interesting questions.
I try to keep things as simple as possible. For example, 64bit system - 64bit apps.
In C:\Program Files the 64bit programs
In C:\Program Files (x86) the 32bit ones.
I never mix up things.
I managed to controll many apps with jOrgan multiple versions here, but trying not to mix (Bridge) 32 with 64 ones. The only exception is REAPER where jBridge is included and all run fine.
See also my ReaRoute Asio post here for more adventures.... :-)
So for an inexperienced begginer in win7 64bit I would advise like this :
1. Install 64bit Java latest always.
2. Install 64bit jOrgan latest always.
3. Install LoopMidi (has both 32 & 64 bit dlls)
4. Stay with direct sound and wait for future Wasapi dll from GrahamG.
Then after opening the computer , open first LoopMidi and close it from red X (so it will stay on as long as we need. Can be closed with task manager).
Open jOrgan, load dispo and play. Or create the controlling disposition of the desired sampler/virtual instrument.
Later, when WASAPI 64bit dll be available, apply patch and enjoy low latency.
For 32bit systems we'll need 32bit java, jOrgan and MidiYoke (LoopMidi too) and WDMKS and WASAPI dlls.
Here the difference is that only with WASAPI we can have multi FS instances workin with low latency.
Another option for win7 64bit systems is to install Both Javas and then 32bit jOrgan only with WASAPI dll.
This way we can play all available dispositions with low latency and clear sound.
ATTENTION HERE : Do not create desktop icon of this 32bit jOrgan in 64bit system, Instead create one from the jar executable file. Also when selecting WASAPI driver carefull to have the same sample rate of Fluidsynth and native soundcard (thanks Erik !).
Since we have installed both javas we don't get problems with other apps in 64bit which will need it.
32bit jOrgan will go for the 32bit one.
Hope I added some more.... discussion must continue on the matter. I look forward if Sven with Graham manage to include WDMKS & WASAPI into jOrgan installer !
For me, as an Asio fan, will be unofficial..... :-)

A very comprehensive group of jOrgan installations carefully managed.
Is there any performance advantage with the 64 bit installation?
Is your main reason for the 64 bit version to give compatibility to link
with other apps?
It seems to me that users are getting a fresh batch of 32 bit / 64 bit
issues since jOrgan version changes past V3.13. Was there some change
that makes this more touchy now, or is it just coming to my attention now?
What can we suggest as the easiest install for inexperienced users?
How can we be sure they have the correct bit version of Java, and that
they put the installation of jOrgan in the correct place (ie Program
Files x86, if 32 bit version)?

Hi Graham, Rick
No problems here and no batch files either. 32 & 64 bit on the same
computer (my known Acer 64bit) win7
Both javas and both jOrgans.
How I do things (after mt older temporary problems...)
Install java 64bit, then th 32 one.
Uninstall any previous jOrgan version - That's why is usefull to have
all dispositions in Documents...
Install 3.14 x64 first as main jOrgan version ie create desktop icon
and YES associate disposition files, also for start manu the name is
jOrgan. In Program Files.
Then I install my first jOrgan x86 as jOrgan 3.14 Asio in Program
Files (x86) NO DESKTOP ICON, NO ASSOSIATION and for start menu as
jOrgan 314 Asio.
Apply Graham's lib files here (1.1.4 Asio)
Then I install my second jOrgan x86 as jOrgan 314 WASAPI in Program
Files (x86). Here too no desktop icon and assosiation and for start
menu as jOrgan 314 Wasapi. Apply Graham's lib file patches here too
No need for WDMKS version here as I got win 7 with WASAPI.
Then I create two desktop shortcuts for those two 32bit jOrgans from
their Java executable files and named jOrgan-Asio and jOrgan-Wasapi
Now I have THREE jOrgan Vesrions here workin' and no batch files.
x64 is my main for Midi controlling my other apps and testing
dispositions with direct sound and the other two 32bit ones are
divided for playing single FS dipsos (Asio) and multi ones with Wasapi.
Hope that helps a bit...
