Opening files or file attachments fail in Sbie [SOLVED]

Post by rm22 » Fri Mar 01, 2019 3:14 pm

Windows 10 Home 1809, Sbie 5.28

I've discovered an issue using "Open with" to open file attachments within a sandbox - for example from email. If the file extension does not have a default program associated with it then it will fail to open in the sandbox (even if you select the app to open it with). To fix it you need to just set a default app and then it opens normally.

When opening a file that doesn't have a default app associated with it outside of Sbie then Windows pops up a box to select an app to open it with - this doesn't happen in Sbie - it just fails to open

Hi Rm22,

Sandboxie opens the default program depending on what you have set as the default program in Windows
(If using Metro apps (Windows 10 apps), then they will fail due to this https://www.sandboxie.com/KnownConflicts#Windows%2010 ) .
