I'll admit, I'm not too technologically inclined, so it is probably a human error, but I bought the game today through Steam's sale. I booted it up, two opening videos played no problem. Then when I click New Game, it kicked me from the game and gave me a Runtime Error. I checked the list of compatible graphics cards, and mine is listed as compatible. I tried running it in compatibility mode with other OS' to no avail. Here are my specs for reference:

OS: Windows 7 Professional 32 Bit
Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 840 processor 3.2 ghz
Memory: 4096MB Ram
Graphics Card: nVidia GeForce 310 1.7gb

Thanks in advance for the help!

The game is notoriously buggy and I am not aware if anyone has done anything about it in the Steam version. I'd suggest ticking the "Run this program as an administrator", "Disable desktop composition" and "Disable visual themes" options in the Compatibility menu, also, leave the compatibility mode to Windows XP just in case.

I did play the game on Windows 7, so I know should be able to run. As I said, though, I'm not sure about the Steam version, however I can't imagine it being that different (if it's different at all) to mine.

Steam version? Try verifying the data, if not install again, it works perfect for me and I am on W7 also.

Sorry, what do you mean by verifying the data?

Library -> right-click on the game -> Properties -> go to the Local Files tab -> click Verify integrity of game cache...

This could be a problem but I don't think it's the most likely most likely cause of the problem. It's still worth doing to eliminate the possibility.
