Apache treatment of symbolic links under Windows

  apache, laravel, symlink, visual-web-developer, windows

Does +FollowSymLinks work with Windows shortcuts? It seems it is completely ignored by Apache under Windows 10.

The importance of this is that, some web frameworks, like Laravel, use this directive to access storage folder (or any other folder outside the public directory) throughout symbolic links. Then, these features are simply ignored in Apache under Windows.

Could anyone, more experienced than I, conform or explain me that? Could you also tell me if there is any workaround?

Thanks for any help!
