It would be nice if you could trigger Low reputation event with it as well because a different popup warning appears before the Auto Sandbox. I'd also like Auto Sandbox Test tool to trigger positive identification by the analysis engine. This way we can test it properly during beta stages, otherwise it's a real pain to test with live malware that is still not covered by signatures...

This AutoSandbox Test Tool is not working for me at all... I mean, no popup... Oh, of course, my AutoSandbox is set to Ask if it makes any difference.

I noticed this (only later did I notice it was originally posted in 2011) but the tool does not seem to be working for me at all.  Is this tool compatible with the current version of avast IS? 

I'm running the 7.0.1456 version of Internet Security with current definitions and the program simply runs, asks to modify and then tells me where the text file is.  The text file then tells me it was not sandboxed properly.

I've noticed people posting about issues with the Auto-Sandbox feature and was just wondering if this program should not be working?

In the latest beta, the tool does not trigger the autosandbox but when you try to "modify the system" you get an alert from the Behavior Shield instead.

I'm trying to develop a small program using C++ for my own use (and possible free distribution once it works), the problem is, EVERY TIME I execute the program, the autosandbox thing captures it. I know it isn't a virus, cuz I WROTE IT.

How do I stop this annoying behavior?

Here is an updated version of the autosandbox test tool
http://public.avast.com/dev/autosandboxme2.exe
Right now, the "File prevalence/reputation is low" reason must be enabled in autosandbox configuration (for the file to get autosandboxed).

Note that the tool is meant to test:
1. the fact that the file gets autosandboxed
2. the fact that the file is properly sandboxed, i.e. the changes performed when it's running do not reach the real operating system
It is not meant to test the detections; the file will be reported as clean.
