Sandboxie-Classic-x64-v5.55.8 - hl.exe crashes and steam.exe follows :(

Post by thomaz »

With Sandboxie-Classic-x64-v5.55.8 hl.exe (CS Condition Zero) crashes and steam.exe follows (ca. 2x in 30 mins) :(
With old old 5.33.6 all runs fine.

But with 5.33.6 i have the problem that firefox (latest) sometimes doesnt terminate when i close it.
Window gone but firefox.exe still running.
Also some strange gfx bug 1x per day and, it looks like a tab appears and disappears very fast, also ca. once per day.

With Sandboxie-Classic-x64-v5.55.8 i cant remember that firefox.exe remains after closing or any gfx bug or tabs (used it for some days).

Due to the gaming problems im forced to use 5.33.6.

And no, i will never let steam or any of its games run native on my main machine since many years ago i caught steam.exe stumbling through my mp3 archive. :(

So i hope that the probs will be fixed soon with Sandboxie Classic *dream* :)

Btw. anybody knows a fix for the firefox not closing bug?
a sandboxie setting or anything i must set in ff to have a guranteed termination on close?
Or an extra app which terminates firefox.exe when window isnt drawn anymore?

is steam installed to the sandbox or just runnign sandboxed but installed outside?

Could you please take the time to test your way through the builds between 5.33.6 and 5.55.11 and tell me in which this crash got introduced.
To speed things up you can use an iterative approach start with something like 5.40 if the bug is there than pick one in between 5.33.6 and 5.40 some ware in the middle, of the bug is not, than pick one in between 5.40 and 5.55.11 some ware in the middle, and so on... and then again in the midden and in the middle, this way you will need to test the minimum ob builds until you find the exact one that started the issue.

Since you say the issue takes a couple of 10 min and I don't have CS Condition Zero anyways it would be best if you could help me debug the issue.

You could also add EnableMiniDump=y to your sandboxie ini this will generate crash dumps in the box root directory, you could send me those generated with the latest 5.55.11 build for evaluation these might be indicate what the issue may be.

I'll try and report.
But i think it will take a while.
The bug seems to be very special.
I play on a server for hrs without any crash and then it loads the map "css_aztec" and i got the crashes.
When i load the map in single player mode (start a local game) it doesnt crash.
So it must be a combination of the server (playing online) and the map.
All i know is, that it works with the older 5.33.6.

Steam is installed outside the sandbox but initial installed through sandboxie with full read/write access to the install folder.

Now i tried Sandboxie-Classic-x64-v5.57.6 but still crashing. :(
I was able to play for several hours then hl.exe crashed to desktop and steam.exe followed 10 seconds later.
Meanwhile with my 3rd complete different win 7 x64 system (Q67, H170 and now Z170).
With SandboxieInstall64-v5.44.1 all works but every couple firefox startups firefox.exe starts but no window appears, killtask firefox.exe and try again which is of course very disturbing.

I really hope the hl.exe, steam.exe crashing will get fixed. *dream* :)
