OM-D.M3 as Webcam stopped working

I successfully installed the software from:

https://dl-support.olympus-imaging.com/webcambeta/index.html

Then RTFM and properly selected the proper menu setting on camera when plugged into camera, Camera dial is set to video:

Highlight [

] using

on the arrow pad and press the OK button.

The camera screen goes dark, all I see is battery %. The windows computer asks what task it should perform recognizing the camera, I select 'take no action'. Both Zoom and Skype recognize the "OM-D Webcam Beta" in their programs as an optional video feed, however when I select it I receive a video error with Zoom and a blank dark screen with Skype.

Suggestions?

It works just fine if I do this the old fashion way and use a USB caption card to HDMI.  Body firmware is v1.2
