Yes, that's very easy. Follow these steps:
Control Panel->System->Performance->Virtual Memory
Then choose the second option and specify your desired location.

OK, that's fine. But suppose I want to use the default virtual memory management option (letting Windows handle it). Is there a way to specify where the swap file is located then?

For the first time, you choose your own settings. After rebooting, you reset back the option which means letting Windows handle it but the swap file location is still the same.

This works for me but hope it works for you too !!!
