    April fool? Hope not! :D

    If not it is fantastic news, the experimental 64 bit protection really looks like it will close the gap on the 32 bit version.

    Looks like yet again Tzuk comes up trumps but the nagging concern, for him also I suppose from his comments, is that Microsoft will plug the gap in patchgaurd he is utilising. Lets hope they actually support it and the 'experimental' features can become mainstream.

    We shall see, meantime 64 bit users enjoy the finest little programme out there in (almost!) all its glory. :)

    Cheers

    I'll be, I wasn't expecting that! Nice job there, updating immediately. I hope MS doesn't mess with it either, but I don't know. They might consider doing what he did to be a flaw in PatchGuard and give it the 'ol coup de grace.

    Very intriguing update, hopefully the new 64-bit protection will stay in the program.

    Wasn't there a topic a while back when some people were saying that some programs will never switch over to 64-bit due to the worse protection level there?

    It seemed to me it wasn't so much about worse protection as it was trying to get around that protection, in order for some security software to "dig in deeper" and allow certain functions to remain intact. I never really bought into it, and considered it laziness of the various vendors who didn't like it. Quite a few of them (won't name names, but it isn't hard to search them up) realized they risked losing customers or were getting a lot of complaints, and slowly started supporting the 64bit platform. To me, MS meant well. Patchguard isn't exactly bulletproof as we have all found out, but, well, what is?

    that YOU own.

    This version brings SBIE 64 bit version protection level very close to
    what it is in the 32 bit version.
    Great news.

    One more question. Am in the sandboxie website as of now. What is the backup CD all about that they mail you. Is that necessay or just the download part is all you need. Bo, I sent you a private message about this matter. Thanks in advance.

    @lws

    you only need the download.
    the cd backup is probably for people to have a version burned to plastic if they want.

    don't do the cd, it's bad for the environment. :)

    So are plastic water bottles, ciggy butts, McDonalds and Tim Hortons wrappers etc.. etc.. See lots along the hiking trails.
    So, in other words you don't have to give sandboxie your email address then if you don't want the backup CD ?

    If I remember right, they email you the key, so yes, you'd need to. Sucks for me as I stopped using the email address I used for that a long time ago, lol. Here's hoping I never have to do a complete reinstall of it :D

    Ok thanks. I thought it was for that back up cd that they would send you if you so opted for it.
    So they don't send you the key via the email address you give them ? Kind of confusing or maybe it's just old age with me as things do get more confusing at times. :D

    Lol, yes, they do send the key via email I believe. I'll go see if I can get a straight answer though over at Sandboxie.

    -edit-

    Keep your license key! If you're like me and use a web email address to sign up, you have to keep a copy of the key elsewhere if you decide to not use that address anymore.

    You don't need the CD, You ll get a receipt(bill) and your key from
    Cleverbridge. Save the key and the receipt somewhere else, I have
    it on a USB drive. You can also save the email that you received
    from Cleverbridge.

    Good move.
