Cannot launch Edge Canary ( inside the Windows 10 Sandbox

Regular Contributor

I launched Windows 10's Sandbox and installed the latest version of Edge Canary. The process seemed to go just fine but I couldn't launch Canary. I tried using the desktop shortcut, the start menu, I even tried shutting down and relaunching Sandbox. It simply refuses to launch from the Sandbox.


1- Launch Microsoft Sandbox

2- From within the Sandbox, go to and install Edge Canary

3- Try to launch Edge Canary ad nauseam. It doesn't work.


I tried Chrome Canary and it launches every time. I've tried Edge Dev and it didn't work. Only Edge Chromium seems to have that problem.

Thank you for this information. Are you still experiencing this issue?



@v-gapart I was until two Windows 10 insider builds ago. Now, I have no way to know because the Sandbox has been broken for at least two weeks.
