    I'm looking to install the CCCP codec pack. I'm running the 64bit version of windows 10. However, as I understand it, isn't civ2 still a 32bit application despite being patched to run on a 64bit OS?

    Does the codec pack flavor correspond with the OS or the applications using it? That is, if I'm running a 32 bit application (like civ2) on a 64 bit OS, do I want to install the 32 or 64 bit flavor of CCCP?

    You're correct that Civ2 MGE and TOT are 32-bit applications. I believe that older versions of Civ2 (original release, Conflicts, and Fantastic Worlds) are actually 16-bit applications.

    The following web page seems to say that the codec pack should align with the application, not the operating system.
