Force Process

Force Process

ForceProcess is a sandbox setting in Sandboxie Ini. It specifies names of programs. If any of these progams are started outside any sandbox, they will automatically sandboxed in a particular sandbox. For example:

   .
   .
   .
   [DefaultBox]
   ForceProcess=iexplore.exe
   ForceProcess=firefox.exe
   [MailBox]
   ForceProcess=outlook.exe

The example specifies that Internet Explorer (iexplore.exe) and Firefox (firefox.exe) will be forced to run sandboxed in the sandbox DefaultBox. Outlook.exe will be forced to run sandboxed in the sandbox MailBox.

Note that the ForceProcess settings only apply to programs that start unsandboxed. If a program is specifically started in a sandbox, or started by a program that is already sandboxed, then ForceProcess settings are not applied.

See also: ForceFolder. If both a ForceFolder and a ForceProcess are applicable to a program that is starting, the ForceFolder setting takes precedence.
