Download the blueprint that can take a company of any maturity level all the way up to enterprise-scale continuous delivery using a combination of Automic Release Automation, Automic’s 20+ years of business automation experience, and the proven tools and practices the company is already leveraging.

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.

Download the ‘Practical Blueprint to Continuous Delivery’ to learn how Automic Release Automation can help you begin or continue your company’s digital transformation.
