Some Windows Sandbox errors you may have


In this post we will see some issues that may occur if you are trying to use the Windows Sandbox feature.

What is Sandbox ?
This is a quick reminder because you can find many things about that.
Since Winndows 10 - 1903 a new feature called Sandbox is available.
This one allows you to run a virtualized environment from your Windows host computer.
You will be able for instance to execute a specific application on an isolated environment.
Windows Sandbox uses hardware virtualization to create this isolated environment.
You won't need to install a VM to use it, given that  it will use OS from your host computer.

When ?

Why ?
This error occurs if you're using Windows Sandbox from an Operating System on which language has been changed. 
The issue also occurs on fresh install.
