Hide all software information via WriteFilePath

Post by Creave » Tue Aug 01, 2017 11:07 am

I want to hide all software information (version, configuration, etc.) via WriteFilePath from programs installed in a specific sandbox.

I found the following two but they're only stating if a program is installed. This is good but I am looking for something additional like ProgramData or AppData inside the Registry.

Code: Select all

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
Which Registry paths to specify? :?:

Hello Creave,

See if this user's Configuration settings work for you:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=24012&p=126368&hili ... th#p126368

You can also try https://www.sandboxie.com/index.php?WriteKeyPath

Interesting topic! This was the first feature I noticed missing and still is the most frustrating thing with Sandboxie.

So this single Registry path will hide any data about installed software whatsoever? One to rule them all, right? :wink:

Code: Select all

WriteKeyPath=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\TypedPaths
This example hides any data which exists outside the sandbox within the TypedPaths registry key, while allowing a program to create new keys and values within the corresponding TypedPaths registry key in the sandbox. This means that Windows Explorer running in the sandbox will not be able to display the history of paths that were typed into Windows Explorer outside the sandbox. But the Windows Explorer running in the sandbox will be able to record and store new paths as they are typed.

Hi Creave,

I meant that you could use the WriteKeyPath instead, if you just wanted to block registry entries.
You will still need to know which ones to block.

And I was wondering why this magical registry key has such an impact... :lol:
