Sandboxie 5.28 RC


Sandboxie uses isolation technology to separate programs from your underlying operating system preventing unwanted changes from happening to your personal data, programs and applications that rest safely on your hard drive. Secure your favorite web browser and block malicious software, viruses, ransom-ware and zero day threats by isolating such attacks in the Sandbox; leaving your system protected. Run your favorite email program in Sandboxie so you never have to worry about suspicious attachments or spear phishing attacks. Sandboxie prevents internet websites and programs from modifying your personal data (i.e. My Documents), files & folders on your system. Safely test and try new programs and applications within Sandboxie and prevent unauthorized changes to your underlying system that may occur.

Known Issues:

  • Sandbox names that are 32 chars may trigger the following problems when launching applications:
    SBIE2327 Error in COM server: [81 / 0]
    SBIE2327 Error in COM server: [31 / 0]
    SBIE2308 Could not create object directory: [22 / C0000004]
    As a workaround, please remove 1 character from your Sandbox's name (31 characters should work as expected).
  • Google Chrome will not install inside the Sandbox. This is still under investigation, no workaround as of now.
  • When upgrading to Windows 10 Insider - Fast Ring- 17755.1 or higher - Including Release Windows 10 1809 Oct Update -, you may be presented with a message stating Sandboxie needs to be deleted (If using any version other than Sandboxie 5.27.1). Please, delete the old Sandboxie version and its installers before proceeding with the upgrade, then reinstall Sandboxie normally (or upgrade to beta 5.27.1 prior to running the Windows update).
  • Unable to install programs or launch Sandboxie installed programs: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=26160 ---> FIXED in beta 5.27.2 - However, MSI installations / installations that require services will still fail .
