    I am trying to use Sandboxie 533-6, which is as far as I know the latest release. I am trying to get an Android emulator to work, like Bluestacks or NOX. They keep failing on driver errors.

    Has anyone gotten an Android emulator to work?

    Like Second Life, using the sandbox allows me not to have a bunch of drivers running on boot, and Android emulators do that so I am trying to emulate one so I can save primary system resources.

    Thanks.

    any driver has to fail i think. at least sandboxie is also an emulation - emu running in emu, i dont think so.

    Does BlueStacks need to use a driver? Then it will indeed fail. Perhaps you can ask the developer of Sandboxie Plus to enable driver loading, old versions of Sandboxie did offer this option.
