Now that IDEA requires that the JRE should be embedded in the idea installation dir, I am trying to figure out if there is a way of having symbolic links on NT/2K? The JRE itself is almost 35MB and copying it again and again especially when you need multiple installtions (due to bugs/not enough faith yet kind of issues), copying JRE is a significant overhead.
Can somebody help with this???
Will using/installing freeware unix shells help?

Yes, you can.
First of all it should be jre 1.4.1
0. jre should be copied to idea home
1. tools jar from jdk should be copied to jre/lib
2. javac.exe from jdk/bin should be copied to jre/bin
