"Licensing is terrible now"

November 11, 2014  |  By johnstalvern

 |  Version: Sandboxie 4.12

Pros

The program works really nicely from what I can tell - it can run programs isolated from your OS. It's pretty easy to use and has years of development behind it.

Cons

TERRIBLE LICENSING TERMS

Summary

After their recent acquisition, Sandboxie's licensing terms are abhorrent. Whereas $40 got you a lifetime license that could be used on any number of computers, now they one $20 to run the program on one computer for one year.

Get a new computer? Buy a new license.

Want to run sandboxie on virtual machine? Buy a license every time you start the instance.

Want to run sandboxie on you laptop while you're at work? Buy another license.

On top of that, you have to repeat this process every year. As a person who tinkers with my hardware a lot and experiments with virtualization and cloud computing, I can't possibly agree to the licensing terms. I have no way of knowing how much it will cost me because "1 computer" is increasingly becoming a nebulous concept.
