Description

Creation of symlinks under Windows is still not reliable due to, honestly, weird behavior of windows' UAC.
The system command mklink /J seems to be interesting because it doesn't need as much elevated user permissions like mklink /.D does (the opposite is a junction vs. a symlink)

I will gamble around with that a bit.
