Try right clicking the executable. go to properties then at the top go to compatibility. At the bottom you should see settings. select run in 640 480 screen resolution. This might get you going.

I have Windows 7 and am currently running SMP. I have it on computers running 32 bit version of Windows 7, and on the 64 biut version.

What version of the game do you have? If downloaded, where did you get it?
If not downloaded, are the installation files on CD or DVD?

Where is it installed? SMP is a 32 bit game. If you're running a 64 bit version of Windows, the game should be in the C:\Program Files (x86) folder.
If you're running the 32 bit version of Windows, the game should be in the C:\Program Files folder.
