        Testing it now (when I remember).

        When first tried after installation it kept throwing up an error. The error number was not listed in the error number list, nor was it located on the Sandboxie forum. Restart fixed that. Now it give me the error below when the browser starts. However, the browser works and the Sandbox has content to empty when the browser session ends. Presumably that indicates it is working (I still need to research that one).

        Yes; just saw this now at SBIE’s site (don’t frequent it much anymore since I use SBIE in WinXP).   This is fantastic news.    I know there’s similar tools for Linux, but they are clunky when compared to SBIE.   Might even install it on my Win10 host OS soon (say might; still prefer to do all my online stuff in a sandbox and keep browsing using my host OS to a minimum and only sites that I’ve beyond thoroughly vetted).   Anyway, kudos to Sophos for not letting SBIE die; it’s been, pretty much, my main defense (Sanboxed OS second) for over a decade now.    🙂

        UPDATE:

        It is running without error message since Chrome was updated about one week ago. Try updating your browser if you see SBIE2101.
