    Windows 10 Sandbox, is it possible to setup some preinstalled software


    Is it possible to setup windows 10 sandbox with preinstalled software, like some programs to test if the work well together?

    Thanks.

    I haven't tried the Sandbox feature yet, but since it's environment is non-presistent between start and stop ( the Sandbox re-sets to a completely clean environment every time one shuts it down / restarts it ), the only way to always start some apps in the Sandbox seems to be by setting up a Configuration file which includes the app to be freshly installed in the Sandbox every time, as shown in the link below which gives an example of a clean install of the Microsoft Edge Insider version.

    Among other possibilities, It is made for testing apps, but you will lose them after you close the session. Forget apps and setup, they'll be gone in one click. But @das10 above gives a link to do so.

    das10's links seem to be a viable solution for me, I'll report back if it works.
    The idea is to configure the xml so that this and that is installed when you launch the sandbox, it shuold be less time consuming than setting up a whole Virtual Machine (if you don't need it persistent).

    Thanks @das10, I tried to give you reputation but "they" say I already gave you (?)
    (You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to das10 again.)

    Ok, I activated the sandbox, just to find out it is totally unusable.
    The sandbox opens up but the cpu is allways going like crazy, it seems it's trying to download some weird (the name is weird) stuff:

    also the search menu does not work.
    It is not possible to use it ATM.

    There is a bug in Sandbox Roy affecting many users, We are among them. A new patch to fix it is in the oven. You should wait instead of saturated the CPU or trying to fix it on your own.
