Under Tools, do you see AUTO POWER OFF
Okay great. Select it and then choose DISABLE

CLICK HERE . Press software at the bottom of the screen (Under Drivers and Downloads) and install EOS 3.4.30 for Windows
Then open it now.
Do you see your camera's status as connected.
Open Device Manager and in the details pane, in the list of devices, locate your camera's name.
Have you installed Digital Photo Professional 4.4.30 for Windows?
That too showing the status as not connected?
Then there is some issue between the pairing of the devices. You can do a factory reset on your camera to check if it resolves the issue.
