Hi, I have a question about creating new beepbeep apps.
My system runs in Windows XP with MinGW/MSYS, and it works
when calling ``./script/new_beep.erl MyApp /Path/To/Destination/ ''
but doesn't work completely when it calls`mklink' command.

I know beepbepp need run in Windows Vista. However, if the problem
is caused only by mklink' command, how does it work when calling command likemklink'?
Can you document some tips about what symbolic links between beep apps and header files
should be made while calling ./script/new_beep.erl? Thank you.

Unfortunately I do not have a Windows machine to test on right now. Instead of making a link I usually put a copy of BeepBeep in a "deps" directory under my project and add it to my Erlang path for the application. This is something you would probably want to do to distribute your application anyway.
