Running Windows Settings app sandboxed?

Post by Scoox » Sun Dec 10, 2017 9:33 pm

I run install and run Chrome in a sandbox. I need to set a default program within that sandbox, but the Settings up refuses to run sandboxed. I'm getting the following error message:

Sandboxie Start
Could not invoke program:

G:\Desktop\Settings (2).lnk
System Error Code:
%1 is not a valid Win32 application.

I believe I used to be able to run the Settings app sandboxed, is there any way to get around this? Thanks

Hello Scoox,

Metro apps are not supported, thus they will not run inside Sandboxie: 10

Regarding how to set your default browser, please see:
