Same problem on Windows 10 x64.

Try to update Java but latest available update for Windows 10 is v8.262 despite v15 being released last month.

Tried uninstalling and re-installing both YawCam and Java to no avail.

Whilst YawCam still appears to be working, I'm getting a very high CPU usage for Java as it runs YawCam although I don't know if CPU was hard pressed before 0.7 update.

Today, I would recommend you to use the OpenJDK 11 (LTS) found here:

Yawcam still works with java version 6 to 8, but could then get some problems when the computer hibernates or goes to sleep.
Using java version 9 or above will handle this better.

The latest java version with "long term support" (LTS) is version 11. That's why this is recommended right now.
