Windows 10 Sandbox allows you to launch an isolated Windows 10 (build 18342) environment to perform tests in all security.
- Enable virtualization in the BIOS.
- Have Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise.
Wait during installation and restart the computer if necessary.
Using the sandbox
It is possible to transfer a file from the production environment to the sandbox by copy / paste.
Customize the sandbox
It is possible to customize the environment by creating a wsb file, which is nothing more than an XML file with the configuration.
Open the file with a text editor and copy the text below then save.
<Configuration> <!-- enable vgpu --> <VGpu>Enable</VGpu> <!-- enable network --> <Networking>Enable</Networking> <!-- share folders --> <MappedFolders> <MappedFolder> <HostFolder>C:\WSB</HostFolder> <ReadOnly>true</ReadOnly> </MappedFolder> </MappedFolders> </Configuration>
It is possible to add a script at startup using the LogonCommand parameter
<LogonCommand> <Command>command to be invoked</Command> </LogonCommand>
This new feature of Windows 10 will now allow you to perform tests without affecting the work environment. You can also use this function to analyze a “dubious” file or install a program to test it to validate it.
