custom sandboxie.ini directory

Post by meeuw » Sat Nov 15, 2008 5:37 am

Hi, I'd like to store sandboxie.ini in a different directory. It would be really nice to have a registry key to change the default location or an ini option to include an other sandboxie.ini file.
Something like:

[GlobalSettings]
Include=D:\Sandboxie.ini

I need this feature because I'm using Sandboxie in a dual-boot setup (native windows vs. virtual windows) where I share the sandboxes. As a current workaround I synchronize sandboxie.ini in the C:\Windows directories. I guess it wouldn't be to difficult to implement.

Sandboxie.ini can also be located in the Sandboxie program directory.
Ex: C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\sandboxie.ini

If you move it there, then use Sandboxie's
Configure | Reload Configuration
right away, so Sandboxie will find it.

Thanks for your suggestion but that wouldn't solve my problem, I have two different c:\program files\sandboxie directories...

Sandboxie frequently rewrites the Sandboxie.ini file, so it would be impractical to just offer an Include directive/instruction, without a drastic change elsewhere that knows to differentiate which settings come from the "primary" file, and which from the "included" file. And such a change would not be trivial.

Thus I would suggest the following "workaround". Install Sandboxie to the folder that is shared between the systems. Then follow Guest10's suggestion to move Sandboxie.ini to that folder and reload configuration.
