I was hopping for success......
What I'm thinkin'.Since we (and all others that) got windows 7 or else in 64 bit, the logical and very practical thing is to have jOrgan 3.12.3 x64 installed, only, no problem for both javas if one has (like me) other apps needing the one or the other.
This way can have jOrgan icon on desktop and/or an organ model shortcut for easy operation like being on 32bit systems.
I'm saying this because if one uses 64bit OS and has installed a jOrgan 32bit version, must double click (on desk top shortcut or directly from jOrgan main folder) the java jar executable file and also cannot do a shortcut for an organ model to open it directly, only if first opens jOrgan.
My main problem was that I couldn't use 64bit FS with jOrgan, now, as you too and Graham too, as reported, can, after Sven located the problem and solved.
I was keeping 32bit jOrgan for new versions check and MidiYoke (always 32bit, installed in win7 64bit with administrator closed - permanent here...), but now, I cannot see a resonable cause to keep it, as we got LoopMidi and Dan, everytime Sven uploads a new 32bit version, he follows with a 64 one, so I'm about to do uninstall the 32bit one from here and keep it on my wife's 32bit lap (I must admit that she helped me a lot all this time I couldn't use the 64bitFS.... he he).
So, Marco and anyone in similar situation, I'm proposing to use 3.12.3x64 only. Clean, simple and handy, plus the benefit of slightly better performance of the 64bit FS.
Traces. Every app that was sonetime installed into our computers leaves traces of its former existence, that's why in my post I said not 100%(....).
For example if we install a demo that expires in 30 days and after this period we uninstall it completely (we think...) and then we reed on site that a new version has been released and we download it and install it, and then we try to open it, we get the message that our trial time has expired ! How come?If not like this, anyone could have with no time limits trial(full workin') versions of comercial apps, but "completely" uninstalling and re-installing. There is a way to get rid off, but I'm still learning how.....
One thing that pisses me off is when a program says that it has been completely removed from my computer and the next minute I see its main folder remaining in C:\........, sometimes leaving its exe file, that's also full workin' !!!
Like our friend GrahamG use to say, I wanna know what's happenig in my computer, in every physical and virtual inch of it and have total control of it. To reach this goal it's a long way to.... Tiperary....
all my bestPanos

By simply uninstalling Java 64 bit, I was able to play jOrgan 3.12.2.
In control panel there was just "Java" listed which pointed to the version
in the "Program Files" folder; after simply uninstalling the 64 bit, control
panel shows "Java (32-bit)" which was not there before.
Of course, I cannot play GBO on jOrgan 3.12.3 because it now gives the
fluidsynth error, as I expected.
The two javas seem to be in conflict with one another when both are
installed. Removing the 64x one and without having to re-install allowed the
32x to work!
