Detailed Description

The Enable-WdacBidTrace cmdlet enables Built-in Diagnostics Tracing (BidTrace) for troubleshooting Windows Data Access Components (Windows DAC).

For more information about data access tracing, see Data Access Tracing (Windows 8) (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh829624(VS.85).aspx) on the Microsoft Developer Network.

-Platform<String>

Specifies the platform architecture. This cmdlet enables BidTrace for the WDAC BidTrace settings that belong to the architecture that this parameter specifies. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 

-- 32-bit
-- 64-bit
-- All

The default value is 32-bit on a 32-bit process. The default value is 64-bit on a 64-bit process. If you run this cmdlet in a remote CIM session, this parameter refers to the platform architecture on the remote computer.

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Accept Wildcard Characters?

false

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.


Aliases

Session

Required?

false

Accept Pipeline Input?

false

Accept Wildcard Characters?

false

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Examples

Example 1: Enable BidTrace for an application on a platform

This command enables the BidTrace for the application C:\temp\abc.exe on the 32-bit platform.


PS C:\> Enable-WdacBidTrace -Path "C:\temp\abc.exe" -Platform "32-bit"

Example 2: Enable BidTrace for application by using a Process ID

This command enables the BidTrace for the application C:\temp\abc.exe on the 32-bit platform for a particular instance of abc.exe. The enabled application has the Process ID 1234.


PS C:\> Enable-WdacBidTrace -Path "C:\temp\abc.exe" -ProcessId 1234 -Platform "32-bit"

Example 3: Enable BidTrace for applications in a specified folder on the native platform

This command enables a BidTrace for all applications located in C:\temp on the native platform.


PS C:\> Enable-WdacBidTrace -Folder "C:\temp"

Example 4: Enable BidTrace for 64-bit applications

This command enables the BidTrace for all 64-bit applications.


PS C:\> Enable-WdacBidTrace -IncludeAllApplications -Platform "64-bit"

Example 5: Enable and disable BidTrace for an application

The first command enables the BidTrace for the 64-bit application C:\temp\abc.exe, and then stores the result in the $bidSetting variable. After you run the first command, you can use abc.exe. The second command disables BidTrace for the application stored in $bidSetting.


PS C:\> $bidSetting = Enable-WdacBidTrace -Path "C:\temp\abc.exe" -Platform "64-bit" -PassThru
PS C:\> Disable-WdacBidTrace -InputObject $bidSetting
