You can use softlinks (linux: ln -s source target) under windows.
MKLINK [[/D] | [/H] | [/J]] Link Target
/D Creates a directory symbolic link. Default is a file
/H Creates a hard link instead of a symbolic link.
/J Creates a Directory Junction.
Link Specifies the new symbolic link name.
Target Specifies the path (relative or absolute) that the new link
The example mklink /D jdk11 jdk-18.104.22.168-hotspot will create a softlink with name jdk11 to folder jdk-22.214.171.124-hotspot in the same directory.
Open a terminal and cd to the directory with the folders. Then run the following command:
for /f "tokens=* usebackq" %G in (
dir /b /a:d "%cd%") do "c:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a -r -tzip "%~G.zip" "%~G
Make sure you have 7z installed under default installation target. Otherwise it won’t find the 7z.exe.
See the following link from msdn. There you find commands to cleanup the WinSxS folder:
You will need admin rights for doing this 😉
My outlook 2010 always wants to save Normalemail.dotm when I close it. To fix this i created a .reg file with the following content and double clicked it:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

I tried to configure basic authentication under an apache 2.4.4 and could not find out why my password didn’t match. Just got the following line in the log though my password was correct:
[…] [auth_basic:error] [pid …:tid …] [client ::…] AH01617: user ___: authentication failure for “/asd/”: Password Mismatch, referer: http://localhost/
So I found the following bug description https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=54735. To come over this I just had to use httpasswd with the -b flag to provide the password from command line instead of prompting for it.
htpasswd -b passwdfile username password
I recently deleted the folder “Favoriten” in the home directory of my Windows 7. This broke the explorer feature as the folder was not recreated. To do this simply open a command prompt (cmd) cd to your home directory and use the following statements to recreate the folder and restore the explorer functionality:
mklink /j Favoriten Favorites
This is of course for a german version of windows. After executing these statements my favorites are working again.
If you want to change the icon of your custom library in the windows 7 file explorer you have to edit a file with your favourite editor. I found the file under the following url:
