I have that problem too. Even though I have VCRedist (32) it still insists to download and install that first before installing sandboxie. The author should opt for a better installer that install VC++ only if it's not present on the PC.

Isn't there another way ?

What do u mean by this? How is it related to sandboxie installation?
- From my link, you have: Visual C ++ Redistributables 2008 (64) : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=bd2a6171-e2d6-4230-b809-9a8d7548c1b6

'The Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64) installs runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries required to run 64-bit applications developed with Visual C++ on a computer that does not have Visual C++ 2008 installed.'

I hope, if not it's easy to remove what you download, and no longer wish, from Add/Remove Programs ..

from what i have read if you use the 64bit installer from this page it should not have V C++

All Versions
http://www.sandboxie.com/index.php?AllVersions

but if you get the download from here it has V C++ with it
http://www.sandboxie.com/index.php?DownloadSandboxie

so i would try the 64bit version from the all versions page
