Didn't see anyone mentioning it. SandboXIE 3.20 is out.
Oh yeah, thanks man!
A GREAT tool.
see this ?? http://www.sandboxie.com/index.php?WindowsVista64
heh PatchGuard will save us all Yay LOL.
Who you gunna trust eh .
Thanks for the heads up Pedro.
No problem guys
BTW, anyone knows what's this about?
I caught it with the "Update Scanner" extension for Firefox (recommend it, i'm hooked). It seems to be a change to the page.
Hi Pedro. It looks like it's for people running on a domain or commercial use. From their forums, you get an error when trying to install if you have a domain. You would then need to buy a license or contact tzuk. If you don't get the error, don't worry about it.
Ah i see. Thank you Innerpeace.
I don't know Sandboxie very well, I have it just 2 days.
So I could be terrible wrong, but there are so many EXPERIENCED SB-users, who can verify this immediately.
Do this :
1. Open Sandboxie
2. Click on "Sandbox"
3. Put mouse-pointer on DefaultBox and click on "Sandbox Settings"
4. Click on "Forced Programs"
IMO the function Add By File doesn't work properly.
You can add one file, but not more than one file.
PS: I have the paid version, so I can use this option.
Curious. I can add multiple program files here, and these proggies will subsequently run sandboxed.
I also have multiple program files added there, you can do this in different ways, but not with "Add By File". That's why I'm asking to TEST it out.
I tried it again and it simply does NOT work.
Click on add by name. Type in for example Opera.exe and then okay. Then repeat and add say iexplorer.exe and then okay. Works fine here.
PS. Obviously you'd use your browser's
I did test it out.
As you can see, [#] GSview [#] subsequently runs sandboxed.
That works, but that is NOT the same.
When you use the browse function to get to the file, it doesn't work and that is not normal.
Something is horribly wrong.
May want to take this to the SBIE forum.
All works as it should here:
Yes it works on your computer, very strange. I did the same thing like you and the file isn't added after clicking "Open".
Couple questions if I may.
1) You're not running Vista, are you?
2) Verify that your SBIE is still registered.
Reason asking is that after registry cleanings here, my registration sometimes dissappears (without any obvious indication). Re-entered key #, and all was again well.
3) Have you tried Sandbox Settings/Forced Programs/Add by Name, and then manually entering the exe name i.e.: program1.exe, program2.exe.
It is a workaround (works here, anyway).
1) I use WinXPproSP2 with an arrear of 80-90 patches.
2) I'm still registered. My name is there on the Help/About-screen.
3) Yes I did and that worked properly, but I prefer the other method, because I don't know the .exe-file by heart.
At this moment I have 3 applications under forced programs, which are added by name, except one.
Only one is added by file, after that I couldn't add any other by file anymore, so I added the rest by name.
Everything regarding SB is frozen, so my freeze storage doesn't remove anything regarding SB.
Have you tried 'Reload Configuration' under 'Configure' after you make your changes?
Edit: also, are you clicking apply after making a change? I figure you are as I see a pop-up telling me to apply the changes I have made.
I didn't reload the configuration, but I clicked on apply.
However I nailed the problem, Sandboxie seems to ignore MS Office Pro 2000 or doesn't recognize. Is that possible ?
If I use "Add By File" to add IrfanView it works, but it doesn't work for MS Word and MS Excel, which is strange.
If I right click on the icon Firefox, I see "Run Sandboxed", this also appears when I right click any other icon, EXCEPT MS Word, MS Excel and PerfectDisk.
Although MS Word/Excel are working fine, I did a customized installation of MS Office and maybe this was not a good idea.
Hmmm... Very weird. I don't have the paid versions of Sbie or the other two MS apps you have. If I right-click my 'factory' IE7 desktop icon, the normal context menu doesn't appear. I then tried creating a shortcut icon of IE7 on my desktop, right-clicked it and a limited menu came up. "Run Sandboxed" didn't appear, but in the 'Send To' section , Sandbox - 'default box' were there. My Avira context scanner didn't show either, but A-squared did. I'm puzzled .
Me too. The problem is not "Add By File", that function works properly.
Applications seems to be divided in two groups :
1. Applications that can be sandboxed and
2. Applications that cannot be sandboxed.
How does Sandboxie make a distinction between both ?
I really wish I could help, but it's beyond me. FWIW, you don't have to register to post at their forum. Hopefully Pete or someone else will come along here soon.
The IE "shortcut" that comes stock on the desktop isn't a shortcut. It's an app, and is designed with a special right click context menu. A true shortcut of IE will give a 'run sandboxed' option on right click, as will the actual IE 'iexplore.exe' file.
You are going to have trouble running certain apps in the sandbox, simply because they have stuff so scattered in different places on the disk it's a mess. AOL software won't run sandbox. I can right click and open a pdf file with foxit in the sandbox, but word 2007 doc files are another story. May just be a design limitation.
Same way if you try and install some things in the sandbox, it won't work. Anything with a driver, or service won't fly. This is good.
