Microsoft.ServiceHub.Controller.exe constantly restarting and exiting when running VS2022 on Sandboxie-Plus

Quincy Hu 0 Reputation points

I am trying to run VS2022 on Sandboxie-Plus, but Microsoft.ServiceHub.Controller.exe keeps restarting and exiting.
Versions are:

Sandboxie-Plus 1.13.7
VS2022 17.10.1


The network works fine, and VS opened by Sandboxie can access the internet.
From the ServiceHub logs, I see:

Warning : The controller process exited normally before accepting a connection. Incrementing the controller shutdown timeout to '60000' and trying again. Warning : Controller terminated with exit code '26'. Signaling cancellation.

vs2022 works fine when I open it outside of Sandboxie.

    Hello @Quincy Hu,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    VS 2022 works fine when I open it outside of Sandboxie.

    Looks like VS 2022 was installed correctly and it can run correctly, but it failed to run just in the specific environment(Sandboxie-Plus).

    I doubt that something blocks VS 2022 from running, or the environment limits VS 2022 from running.

    Can you confirm that it’s possible to run VS 2022 in Sandboxie-Plus?

    I notice that some other members got the same/similar issue as yours. See following tickets:

    Is there any IDE that you can even install and run in Sandboxie?

    Can not start Visual Studio 2022

    Both two tickets => Confirmation pending. I would suggest you kindly confirm that Sandboxie supports VS firstly.
