    Version 3.56

    Released on 17 June 2011.

    These are the changes to Sandboxie since version 3.54.

    Notable enhancements:

    Experimental Protection for 64-bit editions of Sandboxie.
    Program groups may reference other program groups, and may be used in Start/Run and Internet Access Restrictions.
    Block 16-bit programs from starting or running in the sandbox.
    Cmd.exe running under Sandboxie maintains the correct current directory even for SUBST drives or junction points.
    New Start.exe /wait option, documented in the Start Command Line page.

    Usability enhancements:

    "Run Sandboxed" dialog windows include an explanation for the Drop Rights checkbox.
    Desktop.ini files do not appear in Quick Recovery and Immediate Recovery pop-up windows.
    Improved the "Rename Sandbox" command, and the "Create New Sandbox" command can copy settings from an existing sandbox.

    Problems Fixed:

    Some issues with acclerated rendering by recent versions of browsers.
    Some issues with printing to a network printer on Windows 7.
    Some issues where the SandboxieCrypto process remains lingering in the sandbox after other programs already ended.
    Some issues with Sandboxie Control not starting at the end of installation, where User Account Controls (UAC) is active.
    A problem that prevented installation of ActiveX components when Internet Explorer was running under Sandboxie.
    A problem that caused Sandboxie to refuse to install on some 64-bit systems.
    A problem with Immediate Recovery to a path which was too long to display in full.

    Improved compatibility with:

    Office 2010 Protected Mode.
    Media players: The KMPlayer, PotPlayer, Media Player Classic - Home Cinema.
    Security Software: F-Secure 2011, McAfee Total Protection, Sophos Anti-Virus, Trend Micro Browser Guard 2011, Trusteer Rapport, Vipre Antivirus, WehnTrust HIPS for 2000/XP/2003.
    Other software: Babylon, DragonSaga, File-Ex, Nitro PDF 6.

    Thanks updated. I wonder how the experimental 64 bit protection is? I went back to 32 bit 7.

    So far everything goes well
    No bsod or crash sighted
    So I guess sandboxie 64 bit protection is officially 99.9% on par with 32bit :D

    Many Huzzahs. Do you by chance know what was done with this version to give it about the same protection as the 32 bit version?

    Any advice for someone looking to upgrade from a previous version? Can I install over the top of my existing Sandboxie installation? Will I lose programs I have installed to existing sandboxes? Will my settings be preserved, in terms of sandbox restrictions and the like?

    Or do I need to do an uninstallation and a clean start from the ground up?

    Also, if I wanted to activate the experimental protection, is there a way out if Microsoft decide to alter PatchGuard, and thus Sandboxie starts causing BSODs?

    Every sandboxie release I've ever had has been able to be installed over the top. You don't lose anything at all. As far as the experimental, it's unchecked to begin with, and it's a mere checkbox to enable/disable.

    How would they look like?
    Can only be done by kernel experts, I think.

    Anyway, no malware has bypassed Sandboxie x64 yet even without the new experimental protection.
    I am convinced that it will show to be very secure, at least I will run programs sandboxed without worries. :)

    For me, over the top has always been perfect and smooth as it can be.

    Great news!

    Btw, does anyone know how well Sophos-antivirus will run with this version of SandboxIE? I was also wondering about Webroot-av, since it uses the same engine but program differences between these two AVs may make Webroot ok with SandboxIE anyway?

    Thanks blasev:) Installed over 3.54 and no issues:)

    I have installed chrome under sandboxie. I want to allow only chrome components for start/run and internet access. How to configure it as I keep getting errors when I select only chrome.exe as allowed to run and access internet:(

    What errors are you getting ?
    Did chrome run ok with 3.54 ?
    Is chrome ' forced ' in the box ?
