SBIE Compatibility Focus

Post by bjm » Sat Aug 01, 2015 10:03 am

Craig@Invincea: WE typically don't recommend any A/V software to be run within a sandbox. Most of the time, it causes way too many issues & there are countless free, paid and otherwise A/V plus products. However, a few work & a few we try to work with the make compatible. There are just too many options (and options vary per every computer) to make compatible and not break something else. We try to focus SBIE compatibility on major 3rd party programs (Office suites, 3-4 major Browsers, etc..) but if we see a program that has a LOT of people using it & it's causing an uproar, we of course always look into it.
Hello Craig@Invincea
Thank you for posting above comments. I've always had NIS/NAV/N360 listed with Applications and Compatibility.
So, I've always assumed SBIE focus was toward Norton compatibility.
I've even posted several times about when SBIE focus would include Norton Security not understanding SBIE compatibility criteria eg: major 3rd party programs (Office suites, 3-4 major Browsers, etc..)
SBIE breaking Norton Toolbar is not a deal breaker. And now that I have an appreciation of SBIE compatibility focus and why SBIE breaks Toolbar.
Well, thanks for helping me luv SBIE even more. :)
Regards
Sandboxie 5.28 - W10 Home - WebrootSA - Chrome

We've tried to get more AV suites to work and play nicely. But as they add more and more features and they require more ways to communicate outside the SB or within the OS, it defeats the purpose of SBIE. so it's a catch 22. Tools bars in general have been problematic for sometime with SBIE versions.

Once Win 10 settles down and these products settle down as well, we can see what can be done!

The question I ask the Devs...do you see reason to have AV running in a sandbox? Basic AV I can see...the bells and whistles are the headache. So we try to have "basic" level of compatibility.

My goal is to also update and keep updated the compatibility listed online. It's woefully out of date. Maybe some crowd sourcing as well..
