Oops - I think I just realised that the 2nd problem might be my own 
fault :-(

Inside the folder "C:\Windows\Jack" there were previously some DLLs 
which got installed by Mixbus.  In order to prevent them from getting 
over-written I renamed them temporarily.  But it seems like Jack was 
still trying to load them - even though they no longer had the extension 
".dll".  I just moved them out of that folder and I no longer see the 
attached error message.

I'm still not sure though whether the installer installed 64-bit jack or 
32-bit.  Is there any way I can find out?
