Starting rclone service with nssm or manually is paused. Cannot unpause

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Once rclone is installed and nssm is used to get the service running the service shows it's paused. Have tried to reboot. This is on windows 10 following the tutorial I have used for a few years (and has been making it's rounds around the internet).

Are you on the latest version of rclone? You can validate by checking the version listed here: Rclone downloads

rclone v1.57.0
- os/version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 2009 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 10.0.19044.1526 (x86_64)
- os/type: windows
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.17.2
- go/linking: dynamic
- go/tags: cmount```

####  Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive):
```Google drive```

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

Paste command here
```PS C:\Windows\system32> d:\rclone\nssm.exe start RcloneMount```

#### The rclone config contents with secrets removed.  
<!--  You should use 3 backticks to begin and end your paste to make it readable.   -->

Paste config here
type = drive
client_id = *hidden*
client_secret = *hidden*
scope = drive
token = *hidden*","expiry":"2022-02-16T21:24:08.6531818+02:00"}
team_drive = *hidden*
root_folder_id = *hidden*```

#### A log from the command with the `-vv` flag  
<!-- You should use 3 backticks to begin and end your paste to make it readable.  Or use a service such as or   -->

Paste log here

RcloneMount: START: The operation completed successfully.```

This service does start but immediately in paused status.

hello and welcome to the forum,

--- did you look at task manager, was rclone running?
--- run the rclone command with a debug log, the answer might be in there.
--- fwiw, i use task scheduler.

I can confirm the task is not running in task manager. I don't think the starting of the service (nssm) is the issue I think it's something else.

When running from powershell using -vvvv which is what I take it you mean, I get this:

PS C:\Windows\system32> d:\rclone\nssm.exe start RcloneMount -vvv
RcloneMount: Unexpected status SERVICE_PAUSED in response to START control.
PS C:\Windows\system32>

The various interfaces:

please post the full rclone debug log.

need to post the rclone command?
does the rclone command run from command line?

and what did you find in the logs files generated from nssm?
