Windows Sandbox

Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903) delivers a range of new features, including a new light theme experience, performance improvements, and the star feature arguably is the Windows Sandbox.

The security feature Windows Sandbox is available for users with Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise license, and it allows users to access a containerized version of the OS to test potentially malicious apps and software without compromising the actual system.

The Windows Sandbox is a “lightweight virtual environment” and you can run it each time you wish to test something out.

One of the highlights of the Windows 10 1903 update is the introduction of the Windows Sandbox and now the feature is here, but it has been throwing a generic error message when some users try to launch it. Microsoft has stated that the issue affected devices in which the OS language changed during the installation process of a Windows Update.

Today, Microsoft updated its documentation to confirm that it’s working on the issue and that it estimated a fix “will be available in late August.”

Build 18362.325 fixes Sandbox

It’s also worth noting that Microsoft has just shipped Windows 10 Build 18362.325 to the Windows Insiders in the Release Preview Ring and it appears the Sandbox issue has been fixed in this release.

If Windows 10 Build 18362.325 passes Microsoft’s update standards, it will be shipped to everyone in a few days and Sandbox will finally work on all supported computers.
