I've been working on this for a few days, and by now it seems stable enough for public testing.
It's a little app to run 32bit vst plugins in 64bit hosts, usage instructions are included inside the program's folder.
I am interested in your feedback, what works ( if it works ), what doesn't, where does it crash, how it crashes, etc.
Changelog and other stuff available here:
How to use:
After running the installer, use the jBridger utility ( Check the Start menu, in the program's folder ) and follow the instructions to prepare the plugins for being bridged.
Once again, credits for all the folks who have been helping me, specially Brad Robinson from TopTen Software who has been helping me a lot.

Earliest I can play around with it is next week, will do so though. Cubase current VST bridge sucks so my fingers are crossed.
You might want to post this on some of the orchestral based forums, Soundsonline etc.... where most of the 64bit users are.

I've uploaded a new version that changes the way it processes internal midi data, hoping to fix the existing midi issues with vst arpegiattors. I bumped it to v0.1, let me know if there's any performance difference, i've left 0.05 there.
This can also be used for running x64 plugins in x86 hosts, or even for bridging x86 plugins with x86 hosts, to overcome the memory limit of a single 32bit process (not sure if in win64 each 32bit process can use around 3gb or if its 3gb for all the 32bit processes), I don't know if there's any interest for these variants, but if yes, let me know... it's just a matter of compiling.

I'd buy it!

So for now it'll have to be like this.
For now, what you can do for faster updating is creating a *.bat file with these lines (replace with your plugin's name / proper path):
copy <plugin_name.64.exe origin> <plugin_name.64.exe destination>
copy <plugin_name.64.dll origin> <plugin_name.64.dll destination>
rename plugin_name.64.exe "ThisPlugin.64.exe"
rename plugin_name.64.dll "ThisPlugin.64.dll"
I am currently doing something like this.

samplemania, check if you renamed the files correctly. That's weird, it should at least find the auxhost exe.
I did also test samplelord (demo).
Results are the same.
Maybe you should download ReaperX64 for testing.
