[AMBER-Developers] Windows native executable, bin and exe directories, symbolic link

Hello everybody,

The mpiexec from Microsoft HPC Pack 2008 SDK is not able to resolve symbolic links. At present $AMBERHOME/exe is a symbolic link to $AMBERHOME/bin. Many (all?) test Run files have something like "../../exe/" as path to the executables. Therefore, tests for the native Windows version of parallel PMEMD cannot be run. A workaround is to
  rm exe
  mv bin exe
  ln -s exe bin

The default behavior of the configure script should probably be changed such that it creates the exe directory and makes the bin directory a symbolic link to it.

All the best,
