I've developed an application which automatically takes a photo. I am using EDSDK 13.14.40, .Net framework 4.8 and C# with Eos 1500D on Windows 7/10. Camera is connected via USB with PC.
Everything works quite well but we have big issue:
If EOS utility is connected with camera then my application cannot connect with the same camera and vice-versa. I've to run and connect the both software at same time with camera. I have no idea how I can do this?
I would really be glad if someone of you give us a hint or an idea what else I can do.
There is nothing that you can do about it. Only one app at a time. This should have been documented somewhere in your SDK.
Even the Canon EOS Web Cam Utility requires for the regular EOS Utility to be shut down.
“There is nothing that you can do about it.”
Only one app at a time can communicate with the camera via the USB port.
