Patch of file CreateClusterAppMojo.java
We have to add 64-bit launcher to the Maven platform app projects. Also when user is starting platform app from IDE, right launcher should be used. In Maven project it depends on JAVA_HOME. I've made two patches, so they can be used and tested.

Patch to file RunPlatformAppMojo.java
Refiled upstream: https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNBMODULE-164
I committed a variant of your patch to the plugin. Since I have no access to a 64-bit Windows installation, it would be great if you could verify, preferably by Monday so I can start a new release vote.
Today I tried it on Win7 64bit and it works as it should. 64-bit launcher is properly launched.
(Not marking as FIXED here because there is no corresponding NB code change; and since releasing the plugin has a 72-hour voting period, 3.8 could not be released in time for NB 7.2.)
