Start program in its own sandbox directory

Post by Tery » Sat Jan 10, 2015 9:19 am

Hello,
I would like to know if it is possible to create a shortcut on a program specifying the sandbox directory (given as FileRootPath in box configuration file).
For instance something like:
"C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" /box:MediumSecurityBox /boxdir:c:\CalcBox c:\windows\system32\calc.exe

So that Calc.exe always starts in its own sandbox c:\CalcBox, which I can delete if i don't like the program without deleting other sandboxed programs using same sandbox configuration (here MediumSecurityBox).

Thanks :D

There is a way to force a certain program to run in a specific sandbox as well as a way to setup a shortcut for that program sandboxed.

Forced programs (only available in paid version): http://www.sandboxie.com/index.php?Prog ... gs#program
Shortcut: http://www.sandboxie.com/index.php?ConfigureMenu#shell

Not sure if the path would be c:\CalcBox but it would at least be c:\Sandbox\user\CalcBox

I saw these possibilities already but I can't choose a new directory for a new app to test (unless I change FileRootPath or I create a new Sandox configuration). What I am doing by now is rename the sandbox directory in Windows (C:/DefaultBox to C:/DefaultBox_calc) of program i don't use immediately to be able to use the sandbox (C:/DefaultBox) for another new program (which I find easier than recreating a complete new sandbox configuration).
I think it would be great to be able to run a program in its own sandobox (directory name could be generated automatically from program name and maybe also from sandbox configuration name selected)
