Exclude ALL child processes from virtualization
Permalink   
 


Hi,

Is it possible to exclude ALL child processes from virtualization? For example by using a wildcard in the child process list?

In my virtualized app I open PDF files, Excel files and URL's without specifying the application, so the default application will be used and this can be any application. I want these applications to be executed outside the sandbox because otherwise they don't behave well now and then (Firefox and Chrome for example).

Regards,
G.

Wildcards are not supported but directories are.

This may be all you need: try adding %ExternFiles% to Exclude child processes from virtualization.

Works great! So this is an undocumented feature? Can't find it in the (online) docs...

Yeah, not documented.  I found out about it from one of the developers.

Unfortunately %ExternFiles% has an unwanted side effect. There is a font file in my package under %Fonts% and a corresponding registry entry. They aren't used anymore. Is there something I can do about that?

Is your app using an external process for using those fonts?  If you are unsure, you can try using Process Monitor to check.

No it isn't as far as I know. It's a native Delphi application. My Cameyo package contains a single executable and a font file with some special characters.

I just created a test Delphi application that should show some of the special characters in the packaged font. It works if I don't use %ExternFiles% and otherwise it doesn't. I'll send you a download link in a private message.

After reviewing your sample package, we found that %ExternFiles% has a limitation, and we recommend against using it.  Unfortunately, we currently have no solution for your need.

Then I'll stick to chrome.exe;firefox.exe;iexplore.exe;MicrosoftEdge.exe;opera.exe in Exclude child processes from virtualization. Seems OK for now.
