I have been following an idea this morning.



Apparently, one can use Sandboxie to install and run a second copy of Steam/Skyrim.


It is touted as a 100% totally bullet proof way to test mods.



Can MO be hooked in to this kind of a loop / configuration?

Disclaimer: I have not run a system with that setup so all I am about to say is pure conjecture.


Using MO in ANY environment like that will be fraught with danger as you will have multiple layers of software vying for control of running processes. MO often raises flags when it encounters AV or firewall software so an isolation layer may prove too much for it.

Personally I see no benefit to gaming to use Sandboxie, the hassles far out weigh the gains, IMHO.
