Rclone running on Windows Nano Server

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am trying to get Rclone to run on Windows Nano Server and ran into an error stating "panic: Failed to load netapi32.dll: The specified module could not be found." Before I dive into a constant rebuild process to find DLL's I was wondering if anyone has done this yet and have things documented on how to use Rclone inside of Windows Server Nano?

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

1.62.2 - wont run this is the only thing I can provide currently

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

Nothing yet but it will most likely be just local files and UNC based paths

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

Nothing yet

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Nothing yet

A log from the command with the -vv flag

panic: Failed to load netapi32.dll: The specified module could not be found.

I can confirm that netapi32.dll appears to be the only file required for at least anonymous S3 bucket downloads. I still haven't tried a UNC path because of file/share permissions I'm running into. Would be nice to hear back from anyone using rclone as a way to copy files onto or off of a Windows Nano Server and what was done to get it to work.

hello and welcome to the forum,

i am able to run rclone on nano server
