Sandbox 2.0 Installation Question

  • #51622
    Roger Adelmann

    The Sandbox 2.0 Installation Guide specifies that a “64 bit machine” is required. I have a 64 bit chipset (Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2520M CPU @2.50 GHz) but running Windows 7 32 bit (there are bugs with Windows 64 bit). Can Sandbox 2.0 still be installed on my laptop? P.S. I have 4 GB of RAM so no problem there.
    Thanks and regards,

    Hi Roger,
    I believe this should work as virtualbox does state support for Windows 7 32 bit. I would encourage you to give it a try.
