Re: Link support on Windows

Maybe I'll explain better what I want

I have folder c:\A under subversion /A
Then I have c:\inetpub\wwwroot\B under /A/B
Then I have a junction from C:\A\B pointing to c:\inetpub\wwwroot\B
If I'm in explorer in C:\A\B and try to do something with TortoiseSVN, I get
error message "Symbolic links are not supported on this platform", I have to
go trough the real path c:\inetpub\wwwroot\B. That's really anoying.

Gustavo Guerra
