Game Installed & Tested: What Now?

Post by 65Cobra427SC » Tue Aug 01, 2017 1:29 am

I'm new to Sandboxie but after several attempts I managed to install an older game inside a Sandbox and create an external Shortcut... it works flawlessly. Watching how everything fits together by analyzing the directory structure and the files they contain, both before and after the first time I ran the game, was a good way to piece together what's actually happening in the background.

But there are still a few areas I'm not sure about and could use some help.

Let's say I don't want to add anything else to this Sandbox. Is it possible to save this Sandbox into a single self-contained file that could be run by an external shortcut? At the moment D:\Sandbox only contains two subfolders... DefaultBox and the game I installed.

Also, if I wanted to run it on another computer, would I have to install Sandboxie on that system as well for it to work? Or is there a way around this?

Thanks

Hello 65Cobra427SC,

You can create a shortcut to your game and place it on your Desktop:
Configure --> Windows Shell Integration
Click on Add shortcut Icons
Navigate to the desired location to create a Desktop shortcut

As for the folder structure, please have a look at this:

Regarding exporting a program, this may help:
