This post will show how to create symbolic link in Windows. It is tested on Windows XP and Windows 7.
If you are doing development in Windows and your application is deployed on Unix, most common case, then it can save you some time. You can replicate same dir structure on Windows as in Unix during development.
There is this tool called Junction that comes in very handy. It can be downloaded from here.
Below is the screenshot of the steps:
Step 1: Create target directories for the link
Step 2: Create a link “target” at F:\project. This link will point to D:\target
Step 3: Dir listing of F:\project shows that target is pointing to D:\target
Step 4: Dir listing of F:\project\target shows directories inside D:\target
Symbolic link can be deleted by using -d flag:
junction -d F:\project\target
