    Hey all,

    I just installed Sandboxie 64 bit 3.62 on windows 7 64 bit and I remember that after it installed the driver portion, it asked to restart back in windows vista. How come it didn't ask to restart this time for windows 7?

    It doesn't need to anymore, I've upgraded countless times like this without problems.

    Upgrading is just an install that overwrites the previous one.

    ok thanks guys. In the sandbox contents windows, I see firefox.exe but it's not the firefox icon, it's just a generic icon like sandboxiedcomlaunch.exe. Isn't it suppose to show the firefox icon instead of the generic windows one?

    Either minor sandboxie or browser error, unless it isn't Firefox. Have you checked the file properties and see any icons?

    Anything can be named firefox.exe. Check to see (right-click > properties in Windows Explorer) if the one being sandboxed has an icon and digital signature.

    Yea, it's the Firefox icon, and the digital signer is Mozilla Corporation, but no email address.

    Same for me. Must be some minor issue then.

    I figured it out. If you run Sandboxed web browser by right clicking and then "Run as Administrator", firefox.exe is a generic icon in sandboxie, but if you just double click it normally, firefox.exe shows the firefox icon.
