Spread the love

Sandboxie is a program that makes it possible to run programs under Windows in a protected environment. In this way, changes made by programs or web browsers are easy to undo, and there is no risk of affecting important parts of the operating system.

Sandboxie can be used on Windows 7 or higher and is now offered as open source, after Sophos stopped using it. Sandboxie is available in a classic and plus version. Internally they work the same, but the latter has a more modern Qt-built user interface. The changelog for this release can be found below.


  • Added debug switch to disable Sbie console redirection “NoSandboxieConsole=y”.
    Note that this was previously part of “NoSandboxieDesktop=y”
  • Added Sbie+ version to the log #1277
  • Added uninstall cleanup of extra files for the Plus installer (by mpheath) #1235
  • Added set language for Sandman for the Plus installer (by mpheath) #1241
  • Added EventLog messages with SbieMsg.dll for the Plus installer (by mpheath)
  • Group expansion state is now saved
  • Added additional filters to the trace tab


  • Reworked and extended RPC logging
  • Reintroduced the “UseRpcMgmtSetComTimeout=some.dll,n” setting to be used when no “RpcPortBinding” entry is specified. This allows to enable/disable out of box RPC binding independently from the timeout setting
