I know I have played it on my PC with win 7 64 bit, can't remember how I got it working though, I think I just google searched and the solution popped up.

this is the fix for XPx64 but no luck with win 7 First: Control Panel - not using classic display

2. Click Performance and Maintenance

3. Administrative tools

4. click local security policy

5. Then click Software restriction policies.

6. When I did this there weren't any set. So you have to click action tab to create them. When you do so click onto enforcement.

7. Then select all users except administrator.
