This is a quick and easy way to fix the corrupted color palette problem that occurs when running SP:WaW in Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

After unzipping, place this CMD file in your main game folder (the folder that contains MECH.EXE).
Use this file to start the game by making a shortcut to it on your desktop.  That's it.

This will accomplish two things:

1)  Shuts down windows explorer while running the game.  This will fix the color palette problem.
2)  Limits the game to running on just one core of your CPU.  This has been said to improve stability.
