Windows 11 Issue

Post by MeTaLxMaNiAC »

Hi together,

firstly big thanks to DavidXanatos for continuing Sandboxie, to me it is stil one of most important applications ;)
Second is i know Windows 11 is quiet early and there is no support jet but u should know that Sandboxie Plus already work quiet good wiith it together, on Win11 Pro Build 22000.132 and later there is a small Problem if u want to acces the Windows Explorer over Sandboxie

Image

it stays around 1,5 - 2 minutes on this state after Explorer runs normally

I know it's complaining on a high level, but the problem can easily be simulated or recreated thats why wanted report here.


regards
Andi

Yes, I can reproduce this on my test VM as well,
but I'm not sure if i should try fixing it now.
you see... the new windows ui is somehow hacked in as a overlay, like they needed to make it public right now and did not have time to do it properly, so I actually expect MSFT to change everything before a final release.
On the other hand its scheduled for in a month or so, so I'm not sure, may be they will leave the crappy solution in place because well more CPU and GPU usage means more PC sales LOL...

Anyhow I'll look into that issue once W11 is finally final and released to the public.

I hope the Windows Explorer problem would be solved in a beta release

it kind of is just in a windows beta release, a.k.a. an insider build, the last 2 or 3 builds do no longer have the explorer problem when sandboxed

Thank you very much for the answer.
But probally not that easy to fix because process monitor records quiet a lot just by starting it, needs probally a solution that functions from the second pid can be start faster in there to much dlls and extra functions...

But to me it is fine as is, for lightweight Web Sandbox stil the best ;)
