How to use Sand­boxie

APC Australia - - » Windows -

1 DOWN­LOAD SAND­BOXIE

Head to the Sand­boxie web­site ( www.sand­boxie.com), and where it reads ‘Sand­boxie now sup­ports Win­dows 10’, click on the ‘Click here’ app. Once down­loaded, open up the .exe file and the in­stal­la­tion wiz­ard will be­gin. Click ‘I Agree’ on the Li­cence Agree­ment page, select the lo­ca­tion to in­stall the app, then click ‘Next’.

2 IN­STALLING DRIV­ERS

As part of the in­stal­la­tion, Sand­boxie will ask you to in­stall a sys­tem-level driver. This is es­sen­tial to al­low Sand­boxie to em­u­late Win­dows and run soft­ware in a sand­box en­vi­ron­ment. Click ‘Next’ to in­stall the driv­ers — you’ll need to have ad­min­is­tra­tor priv­i­leges. In the event of some­thing go­ing wrong with the driv­ers, restart Win­dows in Safe Mode and unin­stall Sand­boxie.

3 RUN­NING SAND­BOXIE FOR THE FIRST TIME

When you launch Sand­boxie for the first time, a win­dow will ap­pear and it may list a num­ber of ap­pli­ca­tions al­ready in­stalled on your ma­chine that need to be con­fig­ured to work bet­ter with Sand­boxie. Press ‘OK’ to al­low Sand­boxie to con­fig­ure them, but if there’s any you want to leave alone, select them, then tap on ‘Re­move’ to re­move it from the list.

4 KNOWN CON­FLICTS

Some apps — such as an­tivirus soft­ware — may not al­low Sand­boxie to run cor­rectly. If you have any of these pro­grams in­stalled, the ‘Known Con­flicts’ but­ton will flash. Click on it, and a Win­dow will ap­pear telling you what pro­grams were found with that con­flict. Click ‘Yes’ to open the Known Con­flicts web page and search for what work­arounds you need.
