    FYI. After some experimentation this morning as expected I have been unable to install the sandbox feature in a VirtualBox VM. It complains that virtualisation is not enabled.
    K, have you tried messing with the VM settings? This theoretically should work.. VM-in-a-VM-mode?

    Hi folks
    VMWare fails if sandbox is enabled -- howedver unticking it again and then vmware works fine.

    Seems at least with VMWare you can't run both a sandbox and a VM concurrently on the host.
    @Superfly

    in the vmware settings for a VM you can set the processor to enable virtualisation -- at least in VMware workstation --try setting those in your VM and having another test.

    Cheers

    I'm running VirtualBox but yes I am running Hyper V Paravirtualisation but that is a limited feature meant to improve the accuracy of clocks.

    Any software installed in Windows Sandbox stays only in the sandbox and cannot affect your host.

    At least until someone inevitably discovers a vulnerability that allows malicious code to escape the sandbox and affect the host.

    Unfortunately, this is listed in Known Issues for now:

    "Windows Sandbox does not support installers which require reboot."
