Software Updater Blocking

Post by Mister E »


Would it be possible to make the new 'Software Updater Blocking' function switchable in the settings?
I used to be able to test browser updates in Sanboxie before actually applying them unsandboxed, due do having had issues with the odd new browser verion in the past. It would be really helpful the software updater blocking could be toggled off in the settings, that way people who need to test updates Sandboxed will be able to do it again.

Many thanks.

P.S. Thanks so much for maintaining and developing Sandboxie for free, I for one really appreciate it and I understand how much work it must take. You're a lifesaver!

Thank you for your suggestion. So far this, does not seem to have made it into a release.

You can set it manually from the template file:
  1. Sandboxie Plus > Options > Edit Templates.ini
  2. Find: [Template_BlockSoftwareUpdaters]
  3. Under this section, add a # sign in front of the lines of the applications you want to update and save the file.
  4. Sandboxie Plus > Options > Reload configuration
