Write Key Path

Write Key Path

WriteKeyPath is a sandbox setting in Sandboxie Ini. It specifies path patterns for which Sandboxie will hide any registry keys outside the sandbox, while allowing new registry keys and registry values to be created in the sandbox.

Program Name Prefix may be specified.

Example:

   .
   .
   .
   [DefaultBox]
   WriteKeyPath=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\TypedPaths

This example hides any data which exists outside the sandbox within the TypedPaths registry key, while allowing a program to create new keys and values within the corresponding TypedPaths registry key in the sandbox. This means that Windows Explorer running in the sandbox will not be able to display the history of paths that were typed into Windows Explorer outside the sandbox. But the Windows Explorer running in the sandbox will be able to record and store new paths as they are typed.

Note: WriteKeyPath is implemented internally as an enhanced form of ClosedKeyPath.
