Ignore DisableAllSwap since it is mention that it is not supported on Windows.
No such mention for AvoidDiskWrites: https://2019.www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en

I'd suggest grabbing the 'expert mode' tor.exe out of
tor-win64-0.4.2.3-alpha.zip
in
https://dist.torproject.org/torbrowser/9.5a2/
and with it, you can see tor's output to stdout, including whatever error message it is giving you.
