On my laptop with Windows 10 Pro, this works flawlessly. Truly a piece of art, only missing the ability to save the contents of your Sandbox when you shut down.

On my stationary, also with Windows 10 Pro, this is a broken mess and I have no idea why. Several reinstalls and it just doesn't work, even on a clean install. This seems to be an incompatibility with either my motherboard or my processor that started happening after a Windows update. If they fix it and add saving, then this gets 5 stars.

Until then, this is pretty useless to me.

Did you check the virtualisation setting in the BIOS ?

Pretty broken at the moment, even while using an Insider build.

  • Sluggish performance, watching a video is a no-no even if this is a type 1 hypervisor
  • Takes ages to start
  • If you run a VPN on the host, the internet on Windows Sandbox just refuses to work. Good job guys, you had 1 job and you fucked up.

There's definitely potential here though. In 2-3 years when Microsoft has finally bothered to work out the issues, this will be a great program. Until then, just use Virtualbox.
