Level 63
Released on 16 Oct 2014.

These are the changes to Sandboxie since version 4.12:

  • There is a new EULA (license.txt)
  • Fixed Chrome 37/38 crash error C0000008 (invalid handle).
  • Fixed Chrome 38-64 hang (web page unresponsive).
  • Fixed Chrome hang when printing to PDF.
  • Browsers can now access Internet when using McAfee SaaS
  • Fixed Excel crash when copying large amounts of data.
  • Sandboxie now has language support for Farsi (Persian).
  • The auto-update feature only checked the next update time (sandbox.ini setting SbieCtrl_NextUpdateCheck) 1 time when SbieCtrl.exe was started. If SbieCtrl.exe was kept running, it would never check the update time again.
  • ASLR is now enabled for SbieDll.dll 32 bit (64 bit will come later).
  • OpenIpcPath=\BaseNamedObjects\FontCachePort is now in templates.ini as a default. Until now, this was a suggested work-around for some Chrome 37 problems.
NOTE: the default only applies to new installs. For existing installs, you need to go into Sandbox settings->Applications->Miscellaneous, and check the option "Allow direct access to Windows Font Cache"

  • Added hook for GetProcessImageFileName/NtQueryInformationProcess so it now returns the sandboxed path.
  • Improvements to the Dutch language text.
  • The SbieSvc startup time has been increased from 5 seconds to 15 seconds to eliminate the following sequence of startup errors:
SBIE2335 Initialization failed for process %2
SBIE2336 Error in GUI server: %2
SBIE2337 Failed to start program: %2

  • Malware DarkComet is using a quirk in Windows to put up a MessageBox that does not have the sandboxed yellow window border. This poses no security risk, but to prevent user concern, this has been fixed.
  • Special flag added to OpenWinClass to restore Buster Sandbox Analyzer (BSA) message logging. /IgnoreUIPI allows low integrity sandboxed processes to send WM_COPYDATA msgs to windows in higher integrity processes.
Example Sandboxie.ini entries (both lines required):


  • The combined installer SandboxieInstall.exe now checks for the VC Redistributables DLLs Sandboxie requires. If they are not up to date (10.0.40219.325), the installer will download and install the VC Redist. from
If SandboxieInstall.exe tries to download the VC Redistributables and fails, there is now a retry option.

To clarify:
SandboxieInstall.exe does not contain MS VC DLLs. If they are not already installed or are not up to date, the installer will download the VC Redist. installer package and execute it.
SandboxieInstall32.exe & SandboxieInstall64.exe contain the DLLs Sandboxie requires. If they are not installed or are not up to date, the installer copies the ones required into system32. The VC Redist. installer is not downloaded or executed.

I'm new here and having trouble with this site. Don't know where to post my info.
Anyway Sandboxie is NOT available on Windows 10. This message is coming to you from
a test version of Windows 10. Now I am going to have to search for a sandboxie replacement.
I doubt I will be able to find this forum to see what responses I get.

Sanboxie v.4.14 Final - released

Download Sanboxie v.4.14 Final(x32 & x64):

Change in Sanboxie version 4.14:

Benefits of the Isolated Sandbox:
Secure Web Browsing: Running your Web browser under the protection of Sandboxie means that all malicious software downloaded by the browser is trapped in the sandbox and can be discarded trivially.
Enhanced Privacy: Browsing history, cookies, and cached temporary files collected while Web browsing stay in the sandbox and don’t leak into Windows.
Secure E-mail: Viruses and other malicious software that might be hiding in your email can’t break out of the sandbox and can’t infect your real system.
Windows Stays Lean: Prevent wear-and-tear in Windows by installing software into an isolated sandbox.

Translations: The following languages can be selected during installation: English, Albanian, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Czech, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (Brasil), Russian and Turkish.

Operating Systems:Windows XP – Windows 8.1 (32-bit, 64-bit)

Sandboxie v.4.16 Final - Released 20 February 2015

Download Sanboxie v.4.16 Final(x32 & x64):

Changes in Sanboxie v.4.16:

Version 4.16 - Released on 20 Feb 2015.

1.Major redesign of hooking/injection code. ASLR is now enabled for 64 bit (it was already enabled for 32 bit).
2.VC Redistributables are no longer downloaded by the combined 32/64 installer. The required VC DLLs are now included in the installer binary (which is why it is much larger now).
3.KB3031432 in Win 8-64 causes 64 bit applications to crash.
4.Sbie now detects when a sandboxed application starts WerFault.exe because it has crashed, and gives WerFault plenty of time to create a crash DMP file.

WerFault has a couple of flaws. It doesn't create the crash DMP until the user presses OK on the crash popup dialog box. If the user does not respond quickly, the crashed application will exit memory and the DMP cannot be created. So now Sbie disables the WerFault dialog box and issues its own SBIE2224 "Sandboxed program has crashed". WerFault also must be given enough time to do various Internet activities before the application exits.

5.Fixed Outlook 2013 crash at start.
6.Excel 2013 would remain in memory after program exit.
7.Fixed several SBIE2318 Dll Initialization Failed issues.
8.Error SBIE2101 now gives more information.
9.Increased named pipe timeout from 3 seconds to 10 seconds to eliminate SBIE2101 error.
10.A security problem reported by a user has been fixed: hard links could be created outside the sandbox. CreateHardLink API is now blocked.
11.Removed Avast from the list of known conflicts in templates.ini. This means Sandboxie will no longer popup the dialog box telling you to "review the Known Conflicts page..." when Avast is detected.
12.Fixed: certificate revocation information is sometimes unavailable. IE occasionally popped up dialog "Revocation information for the security certificate for this site is not available. Do you want to proceed?"
13.Sandboxie would issue error SBIE2205 Service not Implemented: LoadedModules.
14.Fixed drag/drop crash in Chrome.
15.Added OpenIpcPath=*\BaseNamedObjects*\FntCache to templates.ini to eliminate font cache problems.
16.Added ClosedFilePath=%SystemRoot%\System32\IDStore.dll & 17.ClosedFilePath=%SystemRoot%\System32\wlidprov.dll to templates.ini to eliminate Windows Live problems.


For an earlier version of Sandboxie already installed - you can let the installer upgrade (overwrite) your existing installation.
