Operating systems (e.g., XP) in Sandbox? [SOLVED]

Post by Ed DeWan » Sun Nov 12, 2017 6:01 pm

It's been a while since I last used Sandboxie. I recall, perhaps incorrectly, having installed XP in a sandbox. Can this be done? Perhaps I have the wrong program. When I run the install.exe file, it wants Administrator privileges, but that operation fails.

Hello Ed DeWan,

Sandboxie is not a VM, so you cannot install an OS in it.
You may, however, run Sandboxie from Windows XP or install Sandboxie inside a VM.

Regards,
Barb.-

Thanks. I must be thinking of some other program.
