Google Drive stuck at one moment please – How to fix

Yesterday, I installed Google Drive on Windows Server 2012 R2 as I had to sync files between my Windows 10 PC and Windows Server PC. The Google Drive application was working fine on the Windows 10 PC but on the Windows server 2012 it was not opening. After entering the sign in credentials, Google drive stuck at one moment please. I tried restarting the system, but every time it freezes at the sign in screen. If you are also facing this issue with Google Drive, this article can be helpful for you.
