Sandboxie 1.12.7 Plus / 5.67.7

Sandboxie Plus

Run programs in a sandbox to prevent malware from making permanent changes to your PC.

Sandboxie allows you to run your browser, or any other program, so that all changes that result from the usage are kept in a sandbox environment, which can then be deleted later.

Sandboxie is a sandbox-based isolation software for 32- and 64-bit Windows NT-based operating systems. It is being developed by David Xanatos since it became open source, before that it was developed by Sophos (which acquired it from Invincea, which acquired it earlier from the original author Ronen Tzur). It creates a sandbox-like isolated operating environment in which applications can be run or installed without permanently modifying the local or mapped drive. An isolated virtual environment allows controlled testing of untrusted programs and web surfing.

Sandboxie is available in two flavors Plus and Classic. Both have the same core components, this means they have the same level of security and compatibility. What's different is the user interface the Plus build has a modern Qt based UI which supports all new features that have been added since the project went open source. The Classic build has the old no longer developed MFC based UI, hence it lacks support for modern features, these features can however still be used when manually configured in the Sandboxie.ini.

Sandboxie 1.12.7 Plus / Classic 5.67.7 fixes:

  • Make Duplicate Box Config keep the order of the original box configuration
  • Save options as new defaults disappears from the Summary page
  • fixed Windows Explorer has difficulty navigating when running in a sandbox with data protection enabled on Windows 11
  • the default template for privacy boxes now sets NormalFilePath=%ProgramData%\Microsoft\
  • fixed MessageBox with MB_DEFAULT_DESKTOP_ONLY or MB_SERVICE_NOTIFICATION can not display title and text correctly in security hardened box.
  • fixed Can't run npm inside security hardened sandbox on Windows 11
  • fixed [1.12.6] Symlink and open path issue
  • when a volume without a asociated drive letter is encountered sbie uses \drive{guid} instead of \drive[letter]
  • Note: when the volume later gets a drive letter the data under \drive{guid} will be ignored!
  • fixed right click a sandbox shortcut - click run unsandboxed in order to open the file without sandbox
  • Note: for the fix to take full effect the shell integration need to be re applied
  • fixed Error Status: 0x0000065b (Function Failed During Execution)
  • fixed Privacy Enhanced Sandboxes are fully out of function with SBIE2204 error code
  • fixed OpenFilePath directories are not enumerated within their parent folders
