HiddenServiceDir C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\Documents\Tor\sshd\
HiddenServicePort 22
is added to torrc. Nothing is output to the log.
Windows Service says "An exception occurred in the service when handling the control request".

Can you maybe provide a bit more logging by using this in your torrc file?

Log info file <PATH/TO/info.log>

Sorry, when HiddenServiceDir and HiddenServicePort are set, tor.log is not generated or output.
Before that, you can not start the service normally.

I register Tor with Windows as a service and set the logon to Network Service.
