Encountered a bug with EOS Utility and activated MLV/RAW in movie mode for 7D. Working with 650D, though.
See https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issues/2761/7d-liveview-in-eos-utility-not-working
Please test your model and reply here.
A1ex expects Liveview broken in 5D2, 50D, 500D, 550D, too.
Should be working in 5D3, 6D, 60D, 70D, 100D, 600D, 700D, 100D, 1200D.

Test:
- Load any MLV or REC record module. Don't activate MLV/RAW in movie tab.
- Run EOS Utility and connect cam to PC via USB.
- Activate Liveview option in EOS Utility.
-> EOS Utility will show Liveview as expected.

- Disconnect USB and activate MLV/REC option in movie tab.
- Run EOS Utility
- Connect cam to PC via USB and try to establish Liveview.
-> Liveview button will not work as expected. -> [Fail]
-> Liveview is working -> [Pass]

Please run test and submit results.

Canon 50D (109; build Nighlty 2017Aug18)

mlv_rec loaded : LV window ok
mlv_rec loaded and activate (Move Record enable, RAW video (MLV) ON) : LV window on EOS Utility doesn't start

Canon 5D3 (113; build crop_rec_4k 2017Oct7)

mlv_lite loaded : LV window ok
mlv_lite loaded and activate (Movie mode, RAW video ON) : LV window ok

Some tests with qDslrDashboard:

5D3: LV ok but some warning on Cam screen and finally had an Error 70 (error log same as above)
Try to record videos... crash log: https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/25745110/

50D: LV ok in photo mode but unable to have both (LV on qDslr and cam screen); no LV in movie mode with raw
