Close SPECIFIC program inside a sandbox [SOLVED]

Post by xago » Fri Feb 17, 2017 12:48 am

I'm trying to close or terminate a single program inside a sandbox that has multiple programs running via a start command. The only commands listed in the sandboxie help page are

"C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" /terminate
"C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" /box:TestBox /terminate

however these commands will terminate every program in a sandbox rather than a specific one. I was hoping for something to exist such as

"C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" /box:TestBox /terminate notepad.exe

that would close just notepad.exe and leave the other programs running.

Is this currently possible via any means?

Hello xago,

You can right-click on the program under Sandboxie Control and select "Terminate Program".

From a Sandboxed command prompt you can use taskkill, here's an example:
taskkill /f /im notepad.exe

Regards,
Barb.-

Hi, hopefully this'll help. :)

Assumed sandbox name:
BOXpad

Code: Select all

"C:\PROGRAM FILES\SANDBOXIE\Start.exe" /box:BOXpad "notepad.exe"

Code: Select all

"C:\PROGRAM FILES\SANDBOXIE\Start.exe" /box:BOXpad /wait cmd /c & "C:\PROGRAM FILES\SANDBOXIE\Start.exe" /box:BOXpad taskkill /f /im notepad.exe
