I have recently done it following is the trick

For files 
$ mklink link target 

For directories 
$ mklink /d link target 

Link specifies the name of the symbolic link 
Target  specifies the path (relative or absolute) that the new link refers to.

For details run the following command on command prompt

$ help mklink
