I know it's a dinosaur, but does anyone know if there is a Codec Pack for 32bit Windows XP? Thank you.

what exactly is this for?
i do own a 5D3 and a Mac. what is the benny or what is this codec for?
please explain.

The Microsoft Camera Codec Pack enables the viewing of a variety of device-specific file formats in Window Live Photo Gallery as well as other software that is based in Windows Imaging Codecs (WIC).
Installing this package will allow supported RAW camera files to be viewable in Windows Explorer.
This package is available in both 32-bit (MicrosoftCodecPack_x86.msi) and 64-bit (MicrosoftCodecPack_amd64.msi) versions.

Thanks for the clarification. Really enjoyed this feature (browsing RAW images) when I switched to Mac, but I still have to use Windows at work.

Although Canon has not been releasing codecs for 64 bit windows, Microsoft does release them, but slowly. 
The good thing, is that the codec covers multiple manufacturers.

No support for the 1D X though.

Thank you, Mt. Spokane!
