I've recently been experimenting with a new method of integrating the mount feature into rclone's windows code. This new method is much easier to build and supports windows/arm64 as well as windows/x86 and windows/amd64.
I'd like to switch over to it for the new release, but before that I'd like some feedback from Windows users. It should work exactly the same as the existing code and if it doesn't I'd like to know. It passes all of its tests.
Technically speaking, what this does is abandon using CGO to integrate cgofuse and WinFSP and use the no-CGO method of using cgofuse. This means that no C compiler is needed during the build which simplifies the build process enormously.
Here is the build - please test on Windows (there are no changes for linux/macOS here).
is this the plan?
beta not working.

Run 'rclone --help' for usage.
You could use 'rclone selfupdate' to get latest features.

Been running rclone-v1.59.0-beta.6084.8920feefc.fix-cmount-windows-nocgo-windows-amd64 for about 24 hours now. Will update to rclone-v1.59.0-beta.6089.cdb40336b.fix-cmount-windows-nocgo-windows-amd64 tonight.
No issues to report on Windows Server 2016 Standard
Thanks for testing @VBB if your testing of 6089 goes well, I'll merge where we've got to into the beta. Then we can fixup windows/arm64 separately which may be problems with WinFSP which is new on windows/arm64.
