two junction64.exe documentation issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • I downloaded junction64.exe via https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/junction.

    This utility is very handy, but there are a couple of issues with the documentation:

    (1) The documentation should clarify that there is no installation per se, i.e., one just runs the utility.

    (2) The documentation indicates that one must create a directory and then convert it into a junction:

       To create a junction c:\Program-Files for "c:\Program Files":

       C:\>md Program-Files
       C:\>junction c:\Program-Files "c:\Program Files"

    This doesn't work.  If one skips the first step (md) and directly invokes `junction`, it works just fine.
