EOS Webcam Utility Not Working



So I installed the software in December of 2020 for my Canon Rebel T6s and had to no problem with it until a month ago when I had a Zoom call and only the logo appeared. 

I uninstalled my webcam utility including the driver on device manager. Now whenever I try to reinstall it isn’t showing up on any application that uses a camera. I checked the device driver and it has no camera driver. 

When I plug in my camera now the device manager says “unrecognized Canon Digital Camera”. 

Please help if you have some knowledge on this issue. 




Maybe a driver or recent update has caused an issue?  

Use System Restore and return to a date / point in time when the Utility was working.  


Example is below:


Bay Area - CA
~R5C ( ~Many Lenses ~DxO PhotoLab Elite ~Windows10 Pro ~EVGA RTX 3080Ti FTW3 Ultra
~ImageClass MF644Cdw ~Pixel6 
~6D2 (v1.1.1) retiring


I do not have a restore point on my system so I will not be able to do system restore sadly. I just enabled it for the future. Would you happen to know any solutions?

I have tried to do a clean install of EOS Webcam Utility and my camera is coming up as an unrecognized “Canon Digital Camera” under device manager. When I tried to update driver it said something along the lines of “unable to update MTP USB driver”.
