If you don’t already know, Sandbox is a lightweight virtual environment in which you can safely run applications and test potentially malicious software without affecting the system.
Windows Sandbox fix is in the works
But for some time now, many users can’t run the security feature because of the error code 0x80070002:
Windows Sandbox may fail to start with “ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND (0x80070002)” on devices in which the operating system language is changed during the update process when installing Windows 10, version 1903.
This error won’t let you run Sandbox.
If you’re on the same boat, you’ll be happy to know that Microsoft is working on a fix and recently updated the status of the bug:
We are working on a resolution and estimates a solution will be available in late August.
Although the issue is almost a month old, it seems like the tech giant is getting closer to fixing it and we could see it properly working for everyone by the end of this month.
