    Hi Alexander, if the computers have identical hardware environment, you can use Sysprep tool to deploy Windows XP with SteadyState. Here is an article related to the usage of Sysprep:

    However, if all the restrictions you needed have been covered by the template, I recommend using SCTsettings.adm instead of installing SteadyState on each computer manually. Group policy is more effective to restrict multiple user accounts across numerous computers on a domain network.

     

    If you would like to deploy Computer Restriction settings,  most of them can also be configured via group policy or registry. You can refer to the following thread:

  • Hi,

     

    SteadyState v2.5 uses an MSI installer.  This is now available from the Microsoft download center.

     

    Thanks,

    Rob
