Windows Sandbox - Testing

Post by Reddrgn2 »

Product, version and build:
64 bit - 2020 primalscript - 7.7.139
Operating system:
64 bit OS (18363.815)- win 10 enterprise - 1909

Working getting another testing environment setup, on current pc. Normally have VM ran in Sandboxie. Install programs run scripts to get needed info either locally or if try to get info remotely. I know windows has Windows Sandbox, I am looking at it to see if is something that would be nice to have/use. In Sandboxie I have base image, few things to make little easier but nightly or rather when i reboot/power off pc it resets itself (by my choice). Anyway I am looking at Primal script and notice that it can launch windows sandbox to test scrtips and what not (not tested too much yet). When go to test a script it says it is not recognizing the cmdlets. Do I have to install the modules/import modules to test the scripts? Also this might be more a windows 10 googling event but why is it in windows 10 sandbox can't i see primalscript and other tools?

A Windows 10 Sandbox is a blank instance of your current Windows 10 version. Nothing is installed.
It basically allows you to test things in a very virgin state to determine dependencies.
Unfortunately, Windows 10 sandbox does not allow you to save and restore states, like other VM vendors do.
We are actively looking into supporting additional VM environments to provide an easier testing setup, but I cannot speak to any time frames.
