It is very frustrating. DPP works in 64 bit with my Canon 5D mk1.

The CD that came with my SX50HS is rejected on loading.

I personally think that the solution isn't running dpp but converting raw to DNG (until most software understands the SX50's flavor of CR2 files). From DNG, you can "develop" in a myriad of photo editing programs including great free/open source programs most of which are more powerful than dpp. I like RawTherapee which is available in Windows, Mac and Linux binaries. It goes beyond dpp but it is one of those programs that benefits from reading the manual.

As for running XP, one can always run it in a virtual machine under some other OS. I run 32-bit XP under VirtualBox inside of 64-bit Linux when things require Windows. I rarely let that VM access the Internet since even updated Windows is susceptible to attack.
