Well, I too just got the bright idea to look into this just today, for me as I was wiping my old Win 98 laptop to send it to electronics recycling heaven. I spent 3 hours trying to figure it out with fits and starts, making seeing progress only to find a dead link, etc., and finally found this hosted elsewhere (but still crediting "Cedric"), a related set of instructions, these purporting to also fix the psycho AI issue, but most importantly, it has the file actual file downloads and doesn't just refer to them: http://www.thesewall.com/2016/07/19/installing-civilization-ii-on-64-bit-systems/ I grabbed them all, but ended up using "method 2", and now I'm up and running (Win 7 Home 64bit), like it's 1998 or something all over again. Pretty awesome! Even grabbed some old game files from the laptop before wiping it and dropped them right into the remake. Loaded up like they were from yesterday... (and it includes the no-CD patch, which is really convenient).
