CloudDrive won't start after latest Windows 10 updates


I just installed the 2021-05 and 2021-06 cumulative updates for Windows 10 Version 20H2 and now have CloudDrive stuck "Connecting to service" even though the service is still set to Automatic startup type. When I try to start the StableBit CloudDrive Service from services.msc, I get:


The StableBitCloud Drive Service service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs.

This still happens after a cold reboot. Anyone else running into this, hopefully with a fix? I'm running the latest beta which had been working reliably for a good while for me.

It turns out this had nothing to do with the Windows updates. I had input - apparently incorrectly - Google API settings in ProviderSettings.json, which prevented the service from restarting. The way I found this was the source of the issue was by executing CloudDrive.Service.exe from the command line. Phew!
