Installing Windows Service Programs to sandbox

Post by bassmastergg » Fri Mar 10, 2017 1:14 pm

Hi there,

I'm knew to Sandboxie and I have just been playing around. I am attempting to install a program into a Sandbox. The installation itself sets up a Windows service that is required for the application to run correctly.
The application itself is a client program for a VPN. Normally the service will run and it will attempt to open the client and verify certificates.

What I have encountered is when the entire program is installed directly to a sandbox the service does not run and hence no VPN connection can be made.

My current solution is to install the VPN to my machine and then force the client process to be sandboxed. The service then correctly runs and they client process is put into the sandbox.

Is there any way for me to get the service process to run correctly inside the sandbox ?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello bassmastergg,

Services and drivers need to be installed on the host. Running the application Sandboxed is the way to go in this scenario.
