I tried to install a program in a sandbox, but I get a message that the Windows Installer Service cannot be accessed and the installation fails. Is there a way to go around this?

Thank you. I was only trying to install the program (Clipboard Master) in a sandbox in order to try it out.
I am getting the same issue with practically any kind of .msi file.
It never used to be a problem in the past. There is some kind of issue with the latest version(s) of Sandboxie.

IME it has been a problem for a long time. I now use Shadow Explorer for testing software if it fails to install in Sandboxie. I use Win 10 and tried its inbuilt VM, but I prefer Shadow Explorer.
Hi Jon, and all,
If you are using MSI installers, please refer to the Known Issues section:https://www.sandboxie.com/KnownConflicts#Installing%20programs
Is there a more technical explanation why MSI installers stopped working? Did something change in Windows? The MSI installers that used to work (half a year ago) now do not work anymore.
