No. Windows needs to have the swapfile mounted on a permanant drive.If you have enough ram to even consider it then it is best left for Windows

Stevie is right.  But beyond that, what would be the point in expanding memory size (the purpose of the swap file) by dedicating (and therby loosing) real memory to emulate a disk?  It's a loosing game; you loose space and time to overhead for no net gain.  Better to turn off swapping altogether, though that's also not recommended.
