How can you run a 32 bit version of explorer on 64 bit windows 7 x64?
This is to allow tortoisehg to work.
I've tried running "c:\windows\syswow64\explorer /separate" and it just starts another version of the 64 bit explorer.

Seems like there's currently no known way of getting this to work in Windows 7 (does in Vista though) according to the answers further down here: Stackoverflow question 39746
There's a 64-bit version of TortoiseHg right on their download page:
The general rule is:
If you start a app or script from a Desktop shortcut or Windows Explorer (= 64-bit applications on 64-bit Windows!) the script runs in 64-bit mode. But if you start the same script from a 32-bit application such as Total Commander the scripts runs in 32-bit mode.
