Windows 11 - Can't open any app in Sandboxie 1.4.2 Plus on security higher than default

Using latest version of Windows 11 PRO and Sandboxie 1.4.2 Plus.
For some reason any attempt to open an app in a sandbox with security higher than Default fails like in the screenshot attached.

For example trying to open Notepad++ and then Firefox with no addons or apps fails as seen in these logs

If I don't terminate that Start.exe hanging (Screenshot 01.jpg) app I get lots of messages like in Screenshot-02.jpg.

Can someone help with this?

No luck, tried 1.5.1 (1.5.2 wasn't available, maybe typo).
I got the output of trying to start firefox two times in hardened sandbox (see attached picture)
If I leave it running I get infinite Start.exe error (6980 and 31240): SBIE2204 error

Uninstalled using Revo and installed fresh copy of 1.5.1.

Problem is fixed with version 1.5.3.
When I installed Windows 11 OS fresh copy, install sandboxie non portable, but in settings put the location of sandboxes into C:\Users\<user>\Sandboxes folder. Then after deleting Default sandbox restart your PC.
After that I installed my Bitdefender Security Suite.

Now Windows 11 and Bitdefender work as expected, and I am able to create Hardenened Security sandboxes and open Firefox inside.
