Fix 1: Enable all Windows services on which Sandbox is dependent

There are services you need to enable or restart in Service Manager in order to resolve the “Sandbox failed to start” error.

Follow these steps to open Service Manager and perform the fix:

  1. Invoke the WinX menu by pressing the Windows logo key + X shortcut on your keyboard.
  2. Locate Run in the list and click on it.
  3. In the Run box, type services.msc and click the OK button or press Enter to open Service Manager.
  4. In the window, there’s a list of all services that run on your system. You’ll also find the description, status (whether stopped or running), and startup type for each of them there.

Now locate the following services and make sure they are running and have the Startup type as indicated:

  • Network Virtualization Service: Startup type – Manual.
  • Virtual Disk: Startup type – Manual.
  • Hyper–V Virtual Machine: Startup type –
    If you cannot resolve the
    problem yourself, you can
    ask our certified PC technicians for immediate assistance in the chat right on this page.
  • Hyper–V Host Compute Service: Startup type – Manual.
  • Container Manager Services: Startup type – Automatic.

We suggest you restart them beginning from the first one. To achieve this, you have to right-click on each one and select “Restart” from the options. Or right-click on a service, select “Stop”, right-click on it again, and select “Start”.

Once you complete these steps, try running Windows Sandbox again and see if the message will still appear.

Fix 2:  Update Windows  

Updating your operating system could be all you need to eliminate the error. Microsoft releases bug and security patches on a regular basis. These may also contain driver updates that are required for Sandbox to operate without issues.

Follow these easy steps to check for updates and get them downloaded and installed:

  1. Go to the Start Menu and click on Settings. It’s displayed as the cog-wheel icon.
  2. In the Settings window, locate Update & Security and click on it.
  3. Click Windows Update.
  4. Now, click the Check for updates button. You’ll be notified if there are any available updates. If so, click the Download button.
