What version & revision of CHDK do you have - its shown on the startup logo at the right hand side of the first line.  Its also available in the Miscellaneous menu as "Show Build Info" ?

What operating system are you using ?

What build of chdkptp are you using ?

If on windows, have you installed the libusb driver, and if so, did you use the filter driver or the inf driver ?
Don't forget what the H stands for.

chdkptp doesn't currently have any support for acting as a webcam. If you can find a program that lets you turn an arbitrary window into a webcam source (like vcam, SCFH DSF etc) then maybe you can use it as a webcam.

"it isn't " what ??? I don't understand.
