-Platform<String>

The platform architecture of the WDAC BidTrace setting. Possible values are '32-bit', '64-bit' or 'All'. The default is '32-bit' on a 32-bit process and '64-bit' on a 64-bit process. This is the platform architecture on the remote machine if this command is executed on a remote CIM session.

-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.

-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.

-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

 

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

 

This command enables the bid trace for the application "C:\temp\abc.exe" on the 32-bit platform but it only enables bid tracing for a particular instance of "abc.exe" (with Process ID = 1234):


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

 

This command enables a bid trace for all applications located inside C:\temp on the native platform:


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

 

This command enables the bid trace for all 64-bit applications:


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

 

This command first enables the WDAC bid trace for the 64-bit application "C:\temp\abc.exe". It also saves the result into a Windows PowerShell variable that can be reused in Disable-OdbcPerfCounter:


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