yawcam - worked well for months now will not load

Postby draexo » Thu Apr 26, 2018 12:42 pm

Yawcam has been great.
That being said, I need help!

Windows 10 PC here, with webcam.
Yawcam .61 worked well for many months. About a week ago it stopped working. I have searched and searched and tried a few things with no luck. It seems to me the Yawcam service will not start.

I uninstalled yawcam and deleted the directory c:\windows\program (x86)\yawcam and the .yawcam directory in users.

I have attached a screenshot of what happens when I try to start the service.

Antivirus is BitDefender and it does not appear to be blocking the service.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Tried that. Also tried running it as admin during install. Same result.

I thought maybe the camera itself had broken - it is a 6 year old laptop. I tried ispy and it can not find the camera either.

I then plugged in a Logitech Webcam and disabled the built-in cam. The logitech software finds and uses the logitech webcam with no trouble.

Yawcam and ispy can not find the Logitech Webcam at all, even when the logitech software is turned off.

Well. I fixed this.

I installed Yawcam into C:\yawcam as opposed to \programs (x86)\yawcam.

Now it is working fine.

I do not understand this at all as I had completely removed the \programs (x86)\yawcam

I hope this helps someone else!
