Joomla is on Win2012 R2, XAMPP, Fabrik. I created a symlink like so:

C:\Users\Administrator>mklink /D "C:\xampp\htdocs\pdf" "Z:\"
symbolic link created for C:\xampp\htdocs\pdf <<===>> Z:\

When I point the file upload element to the above directory, and I try to add a new record, there is the following error: JFolder: :folder: Path is not a folder. Needless to say that even though it shows the form, it doesn't save it.

I did this so that I can save the PDFs on a LAN location.

I already assigned the administrator username and password to Apache in Services, it doesn't work.

How do I create symlinks in Win that Joomla will take as a directory, or how to disable the is_dir() check in joomla?
