Canon 5DS R   And we get to a point where we have to install a expensive app to be able to receive the images on a phone or laptop

Using the EOS 7D Mark II, I had the same problem, talking to support they directed me to the link for firmware V1.1.3 when installed on the camera the remote works as expected

The link is https://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/5/0400005265/01/eos7d2-v113-win.zip

If you have another camera update to latest driver, assuming it can be found

Greetings,

I thought the card worked with the EOS Utility and Canon Connect App which is free?

You are correct Rick. 5DsR is listed in the app and states that the WiFi-E1 is required. 
Perhaps OP has an incompatible phone device. That happened in a different thread.

I know nothing about the 5DSR.  But I assume the Canon connect APP will work with it.  The APP is free for an iPhone.  The w-E! from B&H was $20
