Creating symlinks in Windows

Since Windows 2000 you can create symlinks in several ways, the easiest is using Sysinternals tool "Junction".

Once you have downloaded it from the link below and copied it into your path, you can create symlinks in the following way:

junction <junction directory> <junction target>

eg: junction Temp c:\tmp

To delete:

junction -d <junction directory>
