See [^] for why creating symlinks on WIN32 is a PITA. You wouldn't want a password dialog popping up every time a new symlink is created by CMake, possibly hundreds of times, right? And telling your users to modify the security settings is also not a real solution ;-)

Resolving as duplicate of the more recent issue 0013162 because that one subsumes this one (as in generalization of symlink creation support to handle all types of NTFS symlinks).
