  • Question

  •       Embedded 7 disables paging by default.   Is there a way to override that in  an autounattend.xml

Answers

  • In the unattend file -

    To get system managed paging use

    PagingFiles="?:\pagefile.sys"

    To hard code paging files use

    PagingFiles="C:\pagefile.sys <min_size> <max_size> D:\pagefile.sys <min_size> <max_size>"

    If you skip (or set them to zero) min_size / max_size you will get system managed size for those page files.

  • There is a setting in the Core to set the size of the page file:

    Windows Embedded Edition->Setup_x86->PageFile.

  • I noticed that but I want a system managed pagefile size.

  • You may have to change the registry keys in a synchronous command or post installation.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management]
    "PagingFiles"

    If I remember correctly, the min and max values are set to 0, system managed pagefile size is used.
