As you see, both voltages are too far from what they should be
(1) low voltage close to 0V (around 0.5 V).
(2) Vcc/2, so if Vcc = 12V, it is around 6V.
Are you sure, your circuit is connected exactly as the one on post #35?
Since you use LM7812, your Vcc should be 12V. The output of LM7812 could be lower than 12V if its input voltage goes below 13.5V (this happens when the mains voltage is relatively low). But Vcc doesn't increase above 12V (as you said once, to 15V) no matter how high the mains voltage is (though the IC, LM7812, may get very hot). Your Vcc=15V of yesterday made me confused
I suspect that something is not right, but what confuses me is that all three circuit works the same I think it could be over voltage that a may damage the components.When you do measurement to your circuit do you get the same values that I get?
Sorry, I was taking my dinner
To be honest, for such a simple circuit, there is no need to build it just to verify that it runs properly. In this case a simulator is more than enough
But on your side, since you cannot check visually, using a scope, the voltages at every node on your real circuit to find out the cause of the failure, it may be very hard to be 100% sure of anything. Also the probes of a scope have usually 10M ohm as internal impedance while many multimeters loads the circuit with 1M only (do you know it of yours) and this may alter the voltages on some high impedance nodes on the circuit (mainly at the input pins of an opamp).
Could you have a good LM7812?
Did you measure its input DC voltage?
Is the ripple voltage on C1 (100uF) rather high? (you can measure it with the AC voltage tester).
In case your circuit is on a breadboard, is it difficult for you taking an image of it? Perhaps I can help you localise where it seems there might be something wrong.
As a first step, we should focus on U1 and let its ouput generate narrow positive pulses. As we know, in this case, its output voltage should be low (around 0.5 V).
