Using Symbolic Links in Windows
Since Windows Vista it is possible to use symbolic links just like you know it under Linux/Unix systems.
Warning: You have to use the command line to use this tool ;-) The syntax is as follows:
mklink [[/d] | [/h] | [/j]] <Link> <Target>
Most of the time I use it with the /d option. This lets the link point to a directory.
