Yawcam crashes immediately after startup

Postby rjx » Fri Dec 02, 2016 2:14 pm

I've been using Yawcam without problems for several years but now its suddenly started crashing on startup.
The console window is displayed briefly but then it disappears.

I've tried rebooting, uninstalling and reinstalling both Yawcam and JRE but it makes no difference.
Netbeans, another program that depends on JRE still works OK.
Yawcam is still working well on a different machine with the same JRE and Win10 versions

The debug log shows:

Only thing I can think of that's changed is that I've recently installed Unity with Visual Studio 15 community, and then cmake. It may have stopped working after one or the other install.

Any ideas what might be the problem and how to fix it?

This may be relevant to you, as I'm getting a very similar error message after doing a first time install of Yawcam on my Windows 10 computer today.

I tried applying several fixes related to Java suggested in forums and on Yawcam's Facebook page. None of them worked.

I search online for the specific Java error " EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005)" and one place suggested that it could be related to a graphics card. I'm using a DisplayLink USB adapter to extend my screen to an external monitor. I unplugged it and started Yawcam again and it worked as if nothing had ever been wrong. After setting Yawcam up I connected the USB for the external screen again and it still works fine.

So maybe your error message is not related to Java itself, but another hardware connected to your computer?
