Has anyone ever used steady state with a mssql server software on the machine. I currently have some software which is written in C++ that uses this for its back end and transmits the data using MSMQ. The laptop's I'm using have windows xp sp3 installed on them. I have tried locking the systems down but the group of users still find ways of effecting these laptops and management doesn't seem to care and its making my life harder due to the lack of support on the subject and funding, which is why I looked into this as a solution.

Microsoft Steady State for XP, right?  I haven't used it in years, because of its lack of support.  If you cannot specify an exemption in Steady State, I would recommend looking into another product, such as Faronics Deep-Freeze or Faronics Anti-Executable.  I've used both products in different environments and found them both to be outstanding.  Plus, Faronics keeps updating their software so it works on XP, Vista, W7, onwards.
