Win32_PageFileSetting class

The Win32_PageFileSettingWMI class represents the settings of a page file. Information contained within objects instantiated from this class specify the page file parameters used when the file is created at system startup. The properties in this class can be modified and deferred until startup. These settings are different from the run-time state of a page file expressed through the associated class Win32_PageFileUsage.

To create an instance of this class, enable the SeCreatePagefilePrivilege privilege. For more information, see Privilege Constants and Executing Privileged Operations.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all of the inherited properties. Properties and methods are in alphabetic order, not MOF order.
