2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade sandboxie.install -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="''" [other options]

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade sandboxie.install -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="''" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)

Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 02 Aug 2019.


A process sandbox helps to manage and limit access permissions a process has to your data. Use it to safely test new software for usability, safely study behavior of known spyware and malware, or browse the web from a sandboxed browser to completely shield your computer and network from Internet Bad Things.


  • /Language:LANG_CODE - The installation language. Defaults to English. Replace LANG_CODE with LCID code (e.g. 1033 for US English) or BCP-47 language tag (e.g. en-US for US English) for your language. List of supported languages

These parameters can be passed to the installer with the use of --params.
For example: --params '"/Language:en-US"'


  • Secure Web Browsing: Running your Web browser under the protection of Sandboxie means that all malicious software downloaded by the browser is trapped in the sandbox and can be discarded trivially.
  • Enhanced Privacy: Browsing history, cookies, and cached temporary files collected while Web browsing stay in the sandbox and don't leak into Windows.
  • Secure E-mail: Viruses and other malicious software that might be hiding in your email can't break out of the sandbox and can't infect your real system.
  • Windows Stays Lean: Prevent wear-and-tear in Windows by installing software into an isolated sandbox.

Shareware; Free with limitations for personal, non-commercial use

  • After 30 days, nag screen appears that may be dismissed temporarily.
  • Limited to one sandbox at a time.
  • Only software explicitly requested may run in the sandbox (sandboxed programs must be started from Sandboxie program rather than optionally intercepted on the fly).
  • For more information about licensing, see http://www.sandboxie.com/index.php?RegisterSandboxie and the licensing FAQ.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
