SbieCtrl Auto-Close

Post by btm » Fri Apr 17, 2015 5:43 pm

I've made no effort to hide the fact I don't like the Sandboxie icon in the past. This isn't so much about that as I also hate having more running than I need. (yes yes my list of security apps doesn't support that statement) Currently I have the sbiectrl set to not launch at boot but I have checked that sbiectrl should be started 'When a program starts in the sandbox.' as some of my boxes do make use of the auto-delete function that is currently being discussed and this is (currently) controlled by the sbiecrtl. I also do like being able to see the active sandboxed icon in the tray for peace of mind.

What I'd like to see as an option along with 'When a program starts in the sandbox.' is a linked option to close sbiectrl once there are no longer any active sandboxes. Eg have it pop up when active and disappear when not in use.

This isn't anything important and I can't imagine there will be a high demand for such a feature but after my last comment on the deletion thread I figured it might be something worth 'mentioning' at the very least.

I would like to make a comment on this. I use Sandboxie with my browsers, it is set to run not on start up but for when I open a browser - it is also set to delete the sandbox when I come out of the browser - both work very well. Is it possible for Sandboxie to close after it has deleted the sandbox and there is no current activity?
