Sandbox still broken for some users in latest Windows 10 version 1903


Microsoft recently launched
Windows 10 May 2019 Update with Windows Sandbox, Light
theme and several other features, but there have been some
bugs and issues acknowledged by Microsoft.

Windows 10 version 1903 includes a new feature called
Windows Sandbox, a secure environment to test unknown apps
and files. Unfortunately, Windows Sandbox is still broken for
some users and Microsoft says it is planning to fix the problem
in an upcoming release.

On June 27, Microsoft released a big cumulative update for
Windows 10 version 1903 with fix for Night light bug, Internet
Explorer improvements and more. However, the June 27 cumulative
update for Windows 10 version 1903 still carries the Sandbox
bug and a temporary workaround is also not available.

“Windows Sandbox may fail to start with “ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND
(0x80070002)” on devices in which the operating system language
is changed during the update process when installing Windows
10, version 1903,” the company noted in the changelog of
Windows 10 Build 18362.207.

Although Microsoft hasn’t shared ETA, it is likely that
Windows Sandbox bug will be fixed with July 2019 cumulative

Windows Sandbox, which is a secure environment to run apps in
isolation, works only available in Pro and Enterprise editions
of Windows 10, and you cannot run Sandbox on a Windows 10 Home

The other requirements of Sandbox include Virtualization
support, 4GB of RAM, 1GB of free disk space and AMD64

Windows 10 May 2019 Update has several other unresolved bugs
and the company is also blocking the upgrade on devices with
compatible software or driver.

It’s important to note that if your Windows 10 installation is
plagued with potential hardware or software compatibility
issues, the May 2019 Update may not show up on your device and

you will also see incompatible device message on Windows
Update page.
