Sandboxie Changelog

New in version 4.15.4 Beta

November 18th, 2014
  • Several problems fixed in new hooking code. Win 8.1-64 explorer.exe menu problem fixed.

New in version 4.15.3 Beta (November 15th, 2014)

  • Several problems fixed in new hooking code.

New in version 4.15.2 Beta (November 11th, 2014)

  • Fixes:
  • More changes to hooking code. If you have been having problems with starting
  • applications (particularly games) under Sandboxie, see if this fixes the problem.
  • Chrome should now be able to create dump files (DMP) if it crashes. If you have
  • been crashing with dropped rights in Chrome, see if there are DMP files in
  • C:\Sandbox\\DefaultBox\user\current\AppData\Local\CrashDumps.

New in version 4.15.1 Beta (November 8th, 2014)

  • Fixes:
  • Major redesign of hooking/injection code. ASLR is now enabled for 64 bit.
  • VC Redistributables are no longer downloaded by the combined 32/64 installer. The required VC DLLs are now included in the installer binary (which is why it is much larger now).

New in version 4.14 (October 17th, 2014)

  • There is a new EULA (license.txt)
  • Fixed Chrome 37/38 crash error C0000008 (invalid handle).
  • Fixed Chrome 38-64 hang (web page unresponsive).
  • Fixed Chrome hang when printing to PDF.
  • Browsers can now access Internet when using McAfee SaaS
  • Fixed Silverlight crash in Win 8.1
  • Fixed Excel crash when copying large amounts of data.
  • Sandboxie now has language support for Farsi (Persian).
  • The auto-update feature only checked the next update time (sandbox.ini setting SbieCtrl_NextUpdateCheck) 1 time when SbieCtrl.exe was started. If SbieCtrl.exe was kept running, it would never check the update time again.
  • Several large memory leaks (reported by Dr. Larry Pepper et al.) have been fixed.
  • ASLR is now enabled for SbieDll.dll 32 bit (64 bit will come later).
  • OpenIpcPath=\BaseNamedObjects\FontCachePort is now in templates.ini as a default. Until now, this was a suggested work-around for some Chrome 37 problems.
  • NOTE: the default only applies to new installs. For existing installs, you need to go into Sandbox settings->Applications->Miscellaneous, and check the option "Allow direct access to Windows Font Cache"
  • Added hook for GetProcessImageFileName/NtQueryInformationProcess so it now returns the sandboxed path.
  • Improvements to the Dutch language text.
  • The SbieSvc startup time has been increased from 5 seconds to 15 seconds to eliminate the following sequence of startup errors:
  • SBIE2335 Initialization failed for process %2
  • SBIE2336 Error in GUI server: %2
  • SBIE2337 Failed to start program: %2
  • Malware DarkComet is using a quirk in Windows to put up a MessageBox that does not have the sandboxed yellow window border. This poses no security risk, but to prevent user concern, this has been fixed.
  • Special flag added to OpenWinClass to restore Buster Sandbox Analyzer (BSA) message logging. /IgnoreUIPI allows low integrity sandboxed processes to send WM_COPYDATA msgs to windows in higher integrity processes.
  • Example Sandboxie.ini entries (both lines required):
  • OpenWinClass=TFormBSA
  • OpenWinClass=TFormBSA/IgnoreUIPI
  • Fixed Sandboxed cmd.exe crash if window title > 256 chars.
  • Fixed rare BSOD
  • Fixed kernel memory leak in SandboxieCrypto
  • The combined installer SandboxieInstall.exe now checks for the VC Redistributables DLLs Sandboxie requires. If they are not up to date (10.0.40219.325), the installer will download and install the VC Redist. from sandboxie.com.

New in version 4.13.7 Beta (October 15th, 2014)

  • Flash standalone crashes in FFX.
  • Error messages:
  • SBIE2303 Could not hook SetSecurityInfo (1)
  • SBIE2318 DLL initialization failed for 'ntmarta.dll'

New in version 4.13.6 Beta (October 10th, 2014)

  • Chrome 37/38 crash error C0000008 (invalid handle).
  • Chrome 38-64 hang (web page unresponsive).
  • Chrome hangs when printing to PDF.
  • Browsers cannot access Internet when using McAfee SaaS
  • Silverlight crashing in Win 8.1 (viewtopic.php?t=18513)
  • Sandboxie now has language support for Farsi (Persian).

  • Several large memory leaks (reported by Dr. Larry Pepper et al.) have been fixed.
  • ASLR is now enabled for SbieDll.dll 32 bit (64 bit will come later).
  • OpenIpcPath=\BaseNamedObjects\FontCachePort is now in templates.ini as a default. Until now, this was a suggested work-around for some Chrome 37 problems. NOTE: the default only applies to new installs. For existing installs, you need to go into Sandbox settings->Applications->All Applications, and check the option "Allow direct access to Windows Font Cache"
  • NtQueryInformationProcess was not working correctly for 32 bit apps running in 64 bit Windows. The sandbox path was returned instead of the host path. This is mainly for Buster and BSA.
  • There is a new EULA (license.txt)
