I have just tried the EOS Webcam utility on Windows 10 with a 5DMK4, and after setting the camera up and I can see live video on the rear screen, as soon as I plug it in to the PC, the camera screen goes blank and the connected to PC symbol comes up.
In Zoom when I select the EOS Webcam, there is just a light gray screen.
Also I can prevent the connceted to PC symbol appearing if I remove the SD memory card, but the EOS Webcam still doesn't work. It is as if Windows 10 grabs control of the camera first.
Originally the EOS Webcam software was the first Canon utility installed on this laptop, I have since installed the EOS Utility 3 and then disabled it in case it was looking for DLL's from that install.
Windows always pops up briefly with a box asking what I want to do with this device when I plug the EOS 5D in to the laptop.
I have also successfully installed the Beta version on my Mac with out issues, but being Beta it was a bit flakey which is why I'm now trying to get this working on a Windows 10 laptop.
Also I have tried removing and reinstalling, I've tried launching setup.exe as Administrator, I have rebooted after each install. I have also tried Zoom, Skype and MS Teams. I also tried OBS, but the EOS Webcam doesn't even show up in there.
Edit: if it helps I'm running Windows 10 Enterprise, Version 1709, Buid 16299.1932

Review all of the instructions carefully. Your first mistake is plugging the camera into the computer with it powered up.
BTW, if you do not disable the regular EOS Utility 3, when you connect the and THEN turn it on, the EOSU 3 should launch itself. This is one way to confirm that you probably have a good data cable. Once connected, yoiu can set the date and time in the camera, or even control the camera in a remote shooting mode.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe the EOS Utility cannot be runnng at the same time you are using the WebCam Beta Software.

Hi Waddizzle, which instructions are you refering to? I'm following the video on here https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/self-help-center/eos-webcam-utility which clearly says to set the camera up first then plug it in.
