    This build resolves an issue with the registry isolation present since window 10 CU.
    Further more it adds many minor usability improvements and fixes many UI bugs with the new SandMan UI.
    See the change log for a full list.

    I installed Sandboxie Classic 5.46.4 over the top of my already installed version.

    No issues to report so far. Was really smooth.

    When you say it will not run, what error do you get?
    What version did you overwrite?
    Have you tried a reboot?
    What anti-virus?

    As far as I remember it was a dcom error. I first overwrote v5.46.2 then tried an uninstall but no luck. V 5.46.2 was running great. I did reboot and install several times but no luck. Re-installed 5.46.2 and all ok.

    After installing 0.5.5 or reloading ini file
    Code:
    SBIE1411 Sandbox XXXXXX specifies unknown template Windows10CoreUI
    SBIE1411 Sandbox XXXXXX specifies unknown template WindowsFontCache
    
    Besides Sandboxie-Plus Notifications gui freezes

    Okay. I saw SBIE1411 & dialog window #12.
    I opted Yes. I wanted templates cleanup.
    I wanted missing templates removed from my boxes.
    Thanks

    Sandboxie Plus x64 5.5 working great so far! Love the new "start SandMan UI when a sandboxed application starts" feature, so I don't have to have the UI start at windows startup. Thanks David!! :thumb:

    Unfortunately, the new version 5.46.4 has a small setup bug. With a clean reinstallation (with previous uninstallation) certain registry values are no longer set (autostart, context menu).

    Therefore you have to start "Sandboxie Control" manually from the start menu and then just click OK under "Configure" > "Windows Shell Integration". Afterwards everything is entered correctly in the registry again.

    Edit: Just saw that this has already been reported on GitHub as well: https://github.com/sandboxie-plus/Sandboxie/issues/418

    Are you using Plus and Classic on the same machine?
    Also regarding the Fontcache

    Both are installed. I installed Sandboxie-Plus-x64-v0.5.5.exe. When the error occurred sandboxie was working.

    "It's not a bug, you should manually delete any template=WindowsFontCache and template=Windows10CoreUI reference from your C:\Windows\Sandboxie.ini"

    Why were they included if it needed to be deleted?

    "The developer introduced a new cleanup functionality in Plus UI, but not in the classic Sandboxie edition."

    Why? (but not in the classic Sandboxie edition)

    This works well with cracked games, no performance loss?
