/SWAPRUN (Load Linker Output to Swap File)



The /SWAPRUN option tells the operating system to first copy the linker output to a swap file, and then run the image from there. This is a Windows NT 4.0 (and later) feature.

If NET is specified, the operating system will first copy the binary image from the network to a swap file and load it from there. This option is useful for running applications over the network. When CD is specified, the operating system will copy the image on a removable disk to a page file and then load it.

To set this linker option in the Visual Studio development environment

  1. Open the project's Property Pages dialog box. For details, see Set C++ compiler and build properties in Visual Studio.

  2. Select the Configuration Properties > Linker > System property page.

  3. Modify one of the following properties:

    • Swap Run From CD

    • Swap Run From Network

To set this linker option programmatically

  1. See SwapRunFromCD and SwapRunFromNet properties.
