SteadyState For Testing Software RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am wanting to use SteadyState to test software so that I can contain any problems that might arise and also to uninstall it completely when I am done.

    Some software requires a reboot to complete installation.  Can SS do the reboot that the software requires without resetting the virtual environment?

     

    Thank you.

  • Hi, you can try setting WDP to Retain changes temporarily or Retain all changes permanently based on your need. You can also try Virtual PC or Hyper-V function (included in Windows Server 2008 which needs hardware, CPU support) and their snapshot function.

    Hope this helps!

  • I don't think so Holodeck. Maybe Sean can shed some light, but I think what you may be looking for is virtualization software like VMWare or SandboxIE
