Windows 7: BFME2 - Inability to scroll due to multiple monitors

BFME2 - Inability to scroll due to multiple monitors

So I recently found my copy of Battle for Middle Earth 2, and decided to give it a whirl for nostalgia's sake. Only, the moment I get into a game, I'm met with a glaring issue - I cannot scroll across the map in one direction, because my mouse simply moves onto the other monitor.

So, what I have tried, is fiddling with the resolution settings on the game itself - no change. I don't have the option to run it in a window, or move it to my other monitor to see if it persists there. Does anyone have any suggestions of how I might be able to fix this, short of just disabling the other monitor during gameplay?

If your running dual monitors, and running them in extended mode, then un-extend and try the game that way. At least you will get to play it but only on one monitor.
