Yawcam 0.6.0 won't run with Java version 8 update 121

Yawcam 0.6.0 was working fine on 64 bit Windows 10 with Java version 8 update 111. I allowed an update suggested by Java to version 8 update 121 and Yawcam stopped working. After searching the web for this issue I tried setting a System Environment Variable suggested by one web site but that didn't help. Only by reverting to Java version 8 update 111 could I get Yawcam to work again.

I would appreciate any input regarding this since it would be nice to continue to take Java updates for security reasons.

Running perfectly on my setup with:

Yawcam [x86 Program] Version 0.6.0 (built: 2016-05-11)

Java (32-bit) Version 8 Update 121 (build 1.8.0_121-b13) [updated from Version 8 Update 111 on 1/18/2017]

Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.693)

Goto System Properties > Advanced > Environment Variables...

Verify that the System Variable 'Path' contains the following:


There should also be three symlink files located within that folder:


Should uninstall all versions of Java found on the PC, then perform a fresh download and install of the latest Java. Re-check the Path variable and the symlinks.
