Sandboxed putty-tray wont open a link when clicking on it

Post by att » Mon Mar 11, 2019 9:15 pm

Hello,
Another quirk : When I start "putty-tray" in a Sandbox (5.28) on Windows 10, normally I can click on any http link on the console screen and putty will open a web browser.
However, putty-tray will NOT open such a web-browser-window when running inside a sandbox. When I click on the URL, nothing happens.

No idea.....

:!: The Windows version number? -> Windows 10
:!: Sandboxie version number -> latest Sandboxie 5.28
:!: Does the issue occur in a new Sandbox with Default settings? -> YES
:!: NAME & Version/build numbers of any applications involved? -> Latest "putty-tray" as from the link above
:!: Are you running antivirus/anti-malware software? -> Panda Cloud Antivirus free
:!: What are the exact steps to reproduce the issue? -> Run "putty-tray.exe" as Sandboxed program. Connect to any SSH (linux) server. Restore your screen session ("screen -r") and click on any link inside the console screen - it will be ignored. No browser window will be opened.

I really dont know how to give MORE information than that, sorry :?:

Hi att,

This is not a supported app, and unfortunately I don't have a way to test it.
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=24980

As a few ideas, try a different browser
Try turning off your AV software
See if the browser opens at all without the URL invoking it, then re-try while the browser is open

I am leaving the thread open in case users have other ideas for you .

Regards,
Barb.-

Well, well, well........ "putty tray" is not a supported program?
I mean....
Such a simple problem with a simple little program?!

I can tell you that my Putty-tray works perfectly with Windows7 Enterprise/64bit and Sandboxie 5.26/64bit.

The problems start(ed) with Windows10 and/or Sandboxie 5.28. ............... :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:
