Probleems with forced programs in startup folder.

Post by Unknown_User_734 » Sun Apr 22, 2007 9:12 pm

Hi,

I'm using v2.96 ... but this behavior has been around in previous versions, too.

When the computer boots, the apps (FireFox/Thunderbird), which are in the Startup folder come up outside the sandbox, even though SBie is loaded in the system tray.

I close each and reopen and they come up sandboxed.

Comments?

I assume you have them forced?

Sandboxie loads very late in the start up sequence. Your start up programs may actually start before the driver has been started.

Or you can change the startup programs to start through Sandboxie Start.

Your assumption is correct.

The Doc leaves a bit to the imagination ... do i use the command line switches in Properties?

May I start multiple programs this way?

Is the moon really made of cheese?

Thanx,

Imagination?
Start Programs

This is the default behavior. By specified a full or partial path to a program executable file, Sandboxie Start will launch that program under the supervision of Sandboxie:

"C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" c:\windows\system32\calc.exe
Really, I don't mind criticism ... But why would you need to imagine anything with this example?

Or maybe you're asking where to put this command? So the answer would be, in the Target field of the shortcut.

Tzuk, I wasn't criticizing, simply making an observation from a very personal POV.







Thank you,

No problem, I wasn't saying you were criticizing in a negative way. I was just surprised that the page wasn't clear enough.

But then again, the page doesn't say how to put Sandboxie Start in a shortcut link, so if that's what you considered missing ... Then yeah. :)

Yeah, I've been impressed from the first, just how clearly you spell it out, and the good examples you provide.. You're very good with language!
