Trouble running an old game on windows 7?

I am having real trouble getting an old game (Empire Earth) to run on my windows 7 computer. When i run it normally, the game goes 'full screen' but only runs in a small part (top left corner) and this is just for the menus. when i load a game, i get an error message that reads: This application requested the runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information. Then it crashes. I have tried many things, such as playing around with my screen resolution, and changing the game's resolution in the settings but no dice. The only thing that kind of works is when i go into the properties and tell it to run in 640x480 mode in the compatibility section. When i do this, it goes properly full screen, and loads up really nicely but when i get to the menu its really zoomed in so i can only click on some of the options. I've tried running it in compatability mode for windows xp, and nothing happens. Anyone care to shed some light on this for me? Many thanks, Brad
