SBIE2205 - PreferExternalManifest

Postby n8chavez » Sat Feb 05, 2011 8:43 am

I have been getting the below error after installing 3.52, from 3.50. The latter did not have this issue. I searched through the forum and saw that adding "SbieCtrl_HideMessage=2205" was recommended until a fix was found, but adding the entry made no difference for me.

SBIE2205 Service not implemented: PreferExternalManifest
SBIE2205 Service not implemented: PreferExternalManifest
SBIE2205 Service not implemented: PreferExternalManifest


Any ideas? If not, should I go back to 3.50?

This indicates your SbieSvc registry key is missing some value. How did you install Sandboxie? Perhaps some manual installation process that does not do registry modifications?

Not, not that I can think of. I installed it first as an upgrade, but I got that error so I uninstalled. After restarting I installed it again, this time cleanly, but I still got the same error. I'm not sure what to do now, so I reverted back to 3.50.

With version 3.52 or later installed, you should check the following registry key --

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SbieSvc

It should include a value named PreferExternalManifest.

Yes, it does. Below are the contents of that key.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\SbieSvc]
"Type"=dword:00000010
"Start"=dword:00000002
"ErrorControl"=dword:00000001
"ImagePath"=hex(2):22,00,43,00,3a,00,5c,00,50,00,72,00,6f,00,67,00,72,00,61,00,\

"Language"=dword:00000409
"PreferExternalManifest"=dword:00000001


Do I need to modify it?

My Key matches yours. ( I assume you also have the sub-keys):

I do have these subkeys. So another reason for this problem is that your sandboxed program is not given access to this registry key, even though it is only read-only access. There can be at least two reasons:

One, you have some HIPS-type security software that is blocking this.

Two, you have registry permissions on that registry key set in a way that prevents access.
