    Two things...first, don't bump a thread that you just started earlier in the day. It's already near the top of the board, and it's annoying as hell. Second, how can anyone possible help you without more information/ They can't. Post you SBIE configuration if you want anyone to take you seriously.

    You apparently have Foxit Reader listed as a forced program in your Sandbox settings. If you also want pdfs to open sandboxed with Sumatra, you'll have to add it to the forced programs list.

    You evidently use the free version and not the pro, because there are no forced program in that configuration. If there is no more to it then you have no forced programs.

    yes i know that
    so why is it that the pdfs are always sandboxed
    i've checked options in both sandboxie and foxit and found nothing ?

    ps just noticed only 2 of the pdfs open sandboxed
    the other one opens unsandboxed ??

    What I'm telling you is that if you are using the free version it's impossible to have any .exe, pdf viewer or otherwise, automatically launching inside a sandbox. Meaning that the only way to get anything sandboxed is if the user manually launches it that way.

    If you right-click on these 2 pdf's and look in properties, is your browser mentioned in anyway in the shortcut?

    culla,

    I suggest you go to "Shell Integration" menu as shown here, put a checkmark on "Add right click action "Run Sandboxed"..." and open your pdf's with "Run Sandboxed" option in context menu.

    hmm my bad then, sorry, i misread thread title and your original post, i thought you were concerned with some pdf vulnerability or something; regarding what you have just stated, i find that very strange providing the UserSettings you displayed doesn't show that, did you strip its content whyle posting??... to simplify i would probably try to reinstall Sandboxie as suggested

    you sure you didnt open the pdf from links within a sandboxed browser? coz that automatically opens the linked files sandboxed regardless of any forced policies.

    no i didn't strip it

    no i opened by double clicking the pdf

    i'm actually happy with this as i can open them unsandboxed but they'll be sandboxed if double clicked

    reinstalled and updated now it asks if i want to run in default sandbox or outside :D

    thanks to all posters mark it solved
