Improve VisBio.exe Windows launcher

Description (last modified by curtis)

VisBio (and Slim Plotter) uses the Marner Java Launcher for deployment on Windows. ImageJ was using it as well, but George Silva has rewritten the executable wrapper to be more intelligent, searching various locations for the most appropriate installed Java runtime, and other niceties. We could either adapt the new ImageJ launcher (if the license allows) to work with VisBio, or else code our own executable wrapper that behaves appropriately for our software.

For more information, see this  excellent article about deploying Java on Windows.
