Windows – How to make a symbolic link on Windows 7

symbolic-linkwindows 7

I've recently changed from Ubuntu to Windows 7.
One feature I'm struggling to develop without, is symbolic links.
In linux, I would simply

ln -s /where/to/ /where/from/

I've done some googling for Windows 7, but don't know what the standard accepted method is.

BTW I tried "MLINK" in the command line, and it said MLINK not found… – EDIT: As Hello71 pointed out, it is MKLINK, I misread it.

I want to be able to include a php framework in this manner, as each of my projects all use the same library.

There's a typo in your command; It's mklink, not mlink. I still recommend using Junction, mainly because it also allows for deleting junction points, unlike mklink.
