[Solved] Sandboxie - Alter Version Number
Sandboxie is detected correctly on my system, but the displayed version number should be altered:
- in the application the displayed version number is 5.55.7.
- in VulnDetect the displayed version number is 1.0.7 / 5.55.7.
The reason for this confusion is, that there are two different versions of Sandboxie available:
- Sandboxie with the version number 5.55.7
- Sandboxie Plus with the version number 1.0.7
You see both versions at the download page of the current release:
Here a screen shot of the Help -> About window of Sandboxie:
Here a screen shot of the Help -> About window of Sandboxie Plus:
Sandboxie is shown on the Windows 10 Start Menu and in the Help -> About as Sandboxie.
Only at the download site they call it "Sandboxie Classic".
I have Sandboxie installed, so you should show the version number 5.55.7.
The version 1.0.7 should be removed, because this is for Sandboxie Plus
You should install Sandboxie Plus in one of your VMs, because I already have installed Sandboxie in my VM and I can not install both versions on the same system (I just installed in the Windows Sandbox to get the version info).
I already requested Sandboxie Plus here: Sandboxie-Plus - App-Request
Here the information extracted from the EXE file of Sandboxie

The version number 5.55.7 is now displayed correctly.
Thank you for fixing this!
@olli_s Interesting, thank you for the long explanation.
Version has been changed for the normal version.
And lookup has been added for the "plus" edition. So it should also go live soon.
