    Windows 10 Sandbox Restart Error


    I'm getting an error message when I try to restart Windows Sandbox.

    Some software needs a restart after installation, otherwise it can't be tested in a virtual environment.
    Am I doing something wrong ?

    I don't know about the error, but the Windows Sandbox environment gets reset each and every time it restarts so you get a completely clean Sandbox.

    Therefore it cannot be used for testing any software installation which requires a restart. This is one of its shortcomings, unless MS decide to implement some kind of setting in future to allow a 'persistent' Sandbox.

    The only other alternative I know of are Virtual Machines (such as Hyper V, Virtual Box, or VMWare) which allow you to test software and do post installation re-starts as well.

    ....... thanks for your reply.
    From your suggestions I think Hyper V is worth giving a try.
    Thanks again for your help .......

    Hi there
    I think a persistent Sandbox is high on the lists of requests -- not being able to test items that need re-boots after installation, park and resume long test sessions or reboots after parameter changes makes the thing essentially useless for serious testing --- however this isn't such an easy thing to achieve if you also need to maintain a sandbox as a totally isolated secure environment. I'd much rather Ms worked on these sorts of issues -- especially for skip ahead / insider rings rather than muck about with odd unimportant tweakings to the GUI.

    Certain test sessions need one to be able to compare results / outcomes in all sorts of different scenarios -- being able to open and resume sandbox sessions is IMO an absolute priority -- there are cases where you need to use real hardware so a "Classical VM" isn't always the answer.

    Cheers
