Used this before on Windows 7. Worked great.

Using Windows 7 64bit here.
My current soundcard is my video card Asus 5870v2 through the HDMI to my TV/Speakers.
I'm trying to make it so that any program I use that plays midis, will be routed to use my soundfont instead of the default windows gm.dls (MS General Synth). Normally a Creative sound card is required with the soundbank manager, but I discovered that this is not necessary at all.
I found two engines, but have no idea how to make them work. The first was fluidsynth, popular on Linux, but also available on Windows. There are no instructions... anywhere! If anyone is knowledgably about it, please help
The second one is called Timidity. I believe this might be my best bet, but it's not working correctly. I installed it to the default directory, changed the cfg files (in windows folder and the program folder both) setting the location of my soundfont. When I use the midi mapper (chooser), I select timidity instead of Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth. When I play midis, no sound...
I noticed the midi chooser goes back to Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth as If it didn't let me choose Timidity, although when I "DO" click apply to go "back" to Microsoft GS, midis that played before will not and I get some error about a corrupt plugin or something.
I had to do a system restore to get back to square one... so... any suggestions? Alternative engines?
