    Unfortunately, I am not able to assist you.

    I am just posting to remind you, that Sandbox is a feature in Pro, Education and Enterprise editions. The reason Home edition costs less than Pro is that it has only the essentials; for additional features, you must pay extra.

    Always when using various hacks in Home edition to get Pro features, be prepared to lose those features any time. It is not a bug, it is not Microsoft's fault, it does not mean that Windows does not work. It simply means that you have an edition of Windows which is not supposed to have that feature.

    If you submit feedback to Microsoft about this issue, if they respond you will be told that the error message you got means that you have tried to use a feature not supported by your Windows edition.

    To get Sandbox working, upgrade to Pro.

    If this is the case then I would get rid of it. But reason behind posting on this forum was to get the solution about the issue. The tutorial I was referring to is from same forum..so it just makes sense to post on the same forum to get better answer.

    If moderator is reading this post then I would request to either update or remove above linked tutorial from the forum as a preventive measure so that other people don't wander Running Sandbox on Home Edition.

    Thanks

    There is no reason to remove that tutorial. It is excellent one, showing how to enable a feature in edition which does not originally have it. The tutorial does not claim that the hack would work in all future editions of Windows 10.

    My point was, and is, that using any kind of hacks to enable something that shouldn't be there, you will do it on your own risk. If it works in one version but not in the next one, that is something that no tutorial can predict.

    The only way to be sure you have a working Sandbox is to upgrade to Pro.

    Agree with Kari here. And as Microsoft continues to update Windows 10, things that worked in the past may no longer work, or may require a different route to work. And as Kari said, if the Pro features are that important to you, then you should break down and get Pro.

    And if there's an issue with the tutorial, Brink will find the issue and resolve it. Nothing new here. And he's also a moderator.

    Hey Guest viewers

    Note: Currently there are limited solution(s) to this issue.
    If you are facing this issue alike me, I would suggest you:

    1. If you want Sandbox running no matter what..
    You should upgrade to Windows 10 Pro as mentioned by "brink" in the tutorial.

    2. If you don't want to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro..
    You should be waiting until there is workaround by "brink"

    I'll be updating this post ASAP there is (if any)* solution.

    Thanks :)

    Update

    The original tutorial is provided by deskmodder. And it is mentioned on their website that :
    Note: The sandbox notwork up to the version version 18362.116. It is issued only an error 0x80070002 or 0 x 80072746. Here, you have to wait the next update from Microsoft.
    So we will have to wait until Microsoft fixes it.

    Thanks
