Can’t run binary files(.exe) which require admin privileges on mounted disk

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Binary files which require admin privileges for running (e.g. 7z.exe installers) can't be open via double clink on Windows system, always get "N:\7z.x64.exe The specified path does not exist
Please check path, and try again"
Already read all related posts, I'm not to using the admin account to run rclone, and already used --file-perms 0777 option while running.

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.63.1
- os/version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro for Workstations 21H2 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 10.0.19044.3086 (x86_64)
- os/type: windows
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.20.5
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: cmount

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Model name: DS415play
Current DSM version: DSM 7.2.0
This is the latest version available based on your current DSM configurations.

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone mount NAS: N: --vfs-cache-mode=full --no-check-certificate --file-perms=0777 --cache-dir=d:\temp -vv

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = webdav
host = https://nas.local:5006
vendor = other
user = user
pass = ...

A log from the command with the -vv flag

I think @asdffdsa already answered it:

And given that it is your local NAS why you just don't create SMB share instead of using rclone webdav? Simply I do not think you need rclone here at all.

Because windows itself can't mount all folders as a disk with SMB service, you have to pick one share folder, and mount it as a disk.
If you want to mount SMB share folder as a vdisk, you will need to have scripts to manage the mount/unmount actions, otherwise if you don't want to do so, you can only mount them as network disks.
For rclone, I can just have one startup script, then it will mount share folders as physical disk, the disk can contain all share folders, and on need to care about anything else...

I think I have to use commercial paid software Raidrive instead of open-source free software Rclone now.
I'm really sad that I have to make such a decision, Rclone just can't fit my requirements nowadays, hope we can have someone solve such issues...

Yes you need the right tools for the job:)
