Did you create the preference using the browse function?  Looking through the comments in that article, that is what is required.. the PagingFiles entry is a REG_EXPAND_SZ..

That won't work.. the key path can't have the hive name in it.  That's part of why I asked if you used the browse.  

Take out the HKLM\ from the key path (or better yet, go ahead and absolutely use the browse to avoid any chance of misspelling.
