VERDE version: ALL
Often, customers need to install applications on the Windows images C: Drive.
In Windows Vista and higher, you can use the built-in "mklink" command to redirect either files or folders and create symbolic links. For instance, for an app that is required to read c:\windows\termreg.ini for per-user customization, run the following command:
mklink c:\windows\termreg.ini d:\termreg.ini
The following should occur that shows the symbolic link was created:
symbolic link created for c:\windows\termreg.ini <<===>> d:\termreg.ini
and from that point on, each dynamic user has their own c:\windows\termreg.ini.
This can also be done for directories by using the /D switch.
Note: Windows XP can use the "junction" tool from sysinternals instead of "mklink", but it can only do directories, not files.
