PyWinSandbox

Python Windows Sandbox library. Create a new Windows Sandbox machine, control it with a simple RPyC interface.

A good usage for this library would be to easily run sandboxed tests in a controlled envionment.

Quick Start

PyWinSandbox can be installed using pip:

$ pip3 install -U pywinsandbox

If you want to run the latest version of the code, you can install from git:

$ pip3 install -U git+git://github.com/karkason/pywinsandbox.git

Note that the Windows Sandbox should be enabled in your system in order to use PyWinSandbox. See the following Microsoft article on how to do that.

Examples

import winsandbox

sandbox = winsandbox.new_sandbox()
sandbox.rpyc.modules.subprocess.run('explorer .')

# Create a sandbox with a mapped directory.
# Directories are mapped under desktop.
sandbox = winsandbox.new_sandbox(folder_mappers=[winsandbox.FolderMapper(r'C:\users\public')])
tree = sandbox.rpyc.modules.subprocess.check_output(r'cmd /c tree %userprofile%\Desktop\public')

# Create an offline sandbox with a logon script.
sandbox = winsandbox.new_sandbox(networking=False, logon_script="explorer .")

Also a console script is available:

# wsb / winsandbox are aliases

# Create an interactive sandbox session. Spawns an IPython shell.
wsb -i

# Spawn an "offline" Windows Sandbox instance, with a command line.
wsb -s "explorer C:\windows\system32" 

Windows Shell Extension

A shell extension is also available to easily sandbox executables with the right click menu:

Shell Extension

# Run these commands with Administrator privileges

# Register the shell extension
wsb -r
# Unregister the shell extension
wsb -u
