Force a game to run with the second GPU

Post by pipppero2007 » Tue Feb 14, 2017 11:04 am

Hi all,

I have curiosity I cannot solve.

My laptop has TWO gpus: INTEL and NVIDIA.

If I run something sandboxed it will Always run with the INTEL and never with the NVIDIA. How I can force a game to run with the SECONDARY GPU within SB?

Hello pipppero2007,

What are your OS, Sandboxie and Antivirus versions? What are the applications triggering this problem?
I just tested this on Windows 10 x64 + SBIE 5.17.2 and did not see this behavior. I opened a Steam game Sandboxed and it showed under Nvidia GPU activity.

Please have a look at this thread: ... PU#p125140

Also, please ensure that your nvidia card is set up as the preferred one:
Nvidia Control Panel -->"Manage 3D Settings" ---> Set your preferred processor under Global settings
