Sandboxie administrator permision gone after CIS update

After the CIS update to vs, I found out that sandboxie doesn’t work as it should.
It doesn’t have anymore administrator permission no mater what I do.

The User Account has administrator rights.

If I update CIS to the latest version, would the problem disappear?
Or is there other solution?

Can you check with KillSwitch with what rights Sandboxie runs? Is the folder in which you are trying to save one of the Protected Data Folders?

The SBI image - SbieSvc.exe runs under services.exe
The start image - it shows that message when the UAC popup window apears [C:\ … \Sandboxie\Start.exe]

It won’t let me save the file no mater where/what the folder is.

could this be because of publisher’s certificate?

The thing is it doesn’t need the UAC checked.

Before CIS update this is how sandboxie worked:

  • After user login it will popup UAC for sandboxie (autorun) and click ok …
  • I open an archive and drag&drop an app from the archive to the sandBox …
  • I don’t need “Run as UAC Administrator” to be checked, it would work just fine (doesn’t need UAC) …

Could be of HIPS rules or something? … :expressionless:

sandboxie failed to get elevated privileges

How do I fix this?

I found out that CIS has a history with this Sandboxie error!

Can you see what happens when you make SbieSvc.exe a Trusted Application and restarting the service?

Didn’t work … :frowning:

So, no mater where I choose to save the file, it would be saved here: C:\Sandbox\UserAcount\DefaultBox.…
so that is the folder that can’t be accessed by the program!

And the autorun UAC is:
“C:\Windows\system32\sc.exe” start SbieSvc


  1. My settings
  2. HIPS settings
  3. HIPS Rulesets

The thing is, even if I set to trusted, it will change back to custom (if I check remem. my answer) because it has the ask (Img 05)…

  1. Other SB apps
  2. Sandboxed apps (CIS)

Hi Bluery,

I will also ask the QA to check this.

For your information

Kind Regards

Thanks Buket! I’ll be waiting for your response from them.

[b]I found out why it wouldn’t work!

It seems that Auto-Sandbox was detecting the file, even if it was running in sandboxie, as an untrusted file, so CIS was sandboxing the file too.

I think it would be better if Auto-Sandabox will have a compatibility with sandboxie’s files, like asking if I want to run the CIS Auto-Sandbox on sandboxie’s unknown files or something like that!

Thanks for your support![/b]

There’s another thing that intrigues me!

if the file is unknown and it’s auto-sandboxed by CIS, shouldn’t a pop-up message appear alerting me that the file is virtualized and I can choose not to?

Do you have DO NOT show popup alerts enabled?
