i wont get into why i am doing this but it basically revolves around multiple modifications to a program that are incompatable with each other and i want a easy way to switch setups without copying large driectories each time.

but basically i moved the data and config folders of the program to C:\test the other profile is C:\test1 and so on.

in my system variables i have 3 related entries
%appmode% = (variable)
%modedata% = "%appmode%\data"
%modeconfig% = %appmode%\config"

the idea was to create junction points that link data to %modedata% and config to %modeconfig% that way i can switch profiles by simple changing the path of %appmode% to test test1 or test2 so on and so on.

the problem is that changing the root variable doesn't update the junctions. and i was wondering if there is a way to make the junctions update automatically or do i need to write a batch file that recreates both junctions every time i update the variable
