I am not sure what it is called in windows, but i need to create a symlink to a file from the cmd prompt.
So i have a file called foo.flv and i want to create another file called mylink.flv that points to the same file
I am not even sure if this is possible in windows
thanks for any help

The best I can suggest is to create a .bat file that runs the file in question
just type

c:\path\file.flv

into notepad

and save it as mylink.bat - that will run/open the file
