/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.
