Can two versions of SBIE be installed on the same PC ?

Post by Sailor » Mon May 29, 2017 10:23 am

Specifically, v3.76 and <whatever the latest version may be>. PC is W7 x64.

Ok by me if only one may be active at any one time.

Ok (but a bit of a nuisance) if the different versions need to be run under different users.

Thanks

Hello Sailor

What are you trying to do, exactly?
You could use VMWare to install different versions of Sandboxie.

Regarding Sandboxie 3.76, it is very outdated and will not work on current OS installations :

Thanks for replying, Barb.
I want to use a current version for normal sandbox work - browsing, etc. But I also want to be able to fire up 3.76 so that I can use BSA with it. I didn't want to stir up that unhappy history so I didn't mention it in my first post. Sure, I could run a copy of XP in VirtualBox, then SBIE 3.76 in that, and so on, but I was hoping that I could have both versions available straight at my desktop (not at the same time, necessarily).

I had gotten the impression from the million-or-more (maybe not, my eyes started to glaze over by the end) posts that I read yesterday that 3.76 did work on W7.
