Getting WatiN Test Recorder to Run on Win7 64bit

I finally decided to check out WatiN today. The first thing I did was run the Test Recorder, but when I launched the app I received the following error:

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80040154): Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {98EDB477-3064-4D0E-A09E-CC73F9AAB324} failed due to the following error: 80040154.

I’m running Windows 7 64bit. After digging around I found the solution is to run the following command (with administrator privileges):

corflags /32bit+ "C:Program Files (x86)WatiN Test RecorderTest Recorder.exe"

Obviously, change the path to the executable, if necessary.
