Dear Karl,

I noticed that you have closed this one. Let me please make some additional

>From Windows2000, MSWindows is able to handle symlinks provided that the user
account is configured accordingly and that the console in which you create the
symlinks has UAC elevation (basically this means that you need to do something

symlinks (ie NTFS symlinks indeed) even when it is run in a console with UAC
elevation. However, the picture is not so gloom, as if I create the symlinks
manually after the SVN checkout, then any subsequent svn update does not erase

This link is useful for configuring MSWindows :

One needs MSYS2, with the following settings :
* uncomment the "set MSYS=winsymlinks:nativestrict" line in script
* run msys2_shell.cmd as administrator
