every time I start Skype it forces me to sign out and then sign in again. Then I have click on "skip" for the setup process and finally the app starts. It appears that the app's settings are stored in protected storage also, since it never remembers what I select.
Are you sure that this has to do with Sandboxie? I get also the message SBIE2205 but I do not have this problem.
To my mind the new version of Skype is terrible concerning its usability for the user. It starts with the fact that until now I did not even find a possibility to see which is the number of the version I have installed. Nor did I really understand the user settings, especially the ones who have to do with the opening and closing of Skype.
Indeed with the new Skype version I get two windows with messages by Sandboxie, the one with SBIE2205, and (first) another one with SBIE1308 (+ SBIE2222 and SBIE2314) (concerning the program reg.exe).
But these messages (respectively their contents) do not cause problems in using Skype. I can close the two windows with the messages and continue to use Skype.
And I am able to stay logged in, without the necessity to sign out and to sign in again. These are my settings in Skype for starting and closing it (of course I had to make these settings with Skype started outside
of Sandboxie in order to keep them):
- Skype starting automatically: Grey [obviously this means: not activated]
- Skype starting in the background: Grey
- Skype will continue to be executed after closing: Blue [= obviously: activated]
Though I have no idea what the exact meaning and the difference of these three options is, for me it works with the above settings in the following way:
(a) Skype starts (within the Sandbox) without the necessity to log in - the SBIE messages appear but I can close them and continue with Skype.
(b) When closing Skype (clicking the X in the upper right corner of the window) it is minimized to the tray. - When I right click on the Skype icon in the tray and I choose the option "Skype beenden" (= "Finish Skype" or however it is called in English) the icon disappears. - The next time I want to use Skype it works as described under (a).
So, Sam777, perhaps you should take a look at your Skype settings to see if they are possibly responsible for the problem you describe with signing in/out.
