Link shell extension: link creation heavily delayed for some

August 24, 2017 at 15:38:53
Specs: Windows 7 Enterprise
having a problem with creating symbolic links - the computer on which we wish to create these links is being logged onto remotely.

One user is able to instantly create the links, while when other users log on, no link appears when they drop as symbolic links. Sometimes the link appears a day or 2 later.

Any ideas as to why this may be happening?

Are you creating symlinks with command prompt or third party software?
Are the users creating symlinks administrators or do they have administrator rights?
As far as I know for Windows 7, 8, 10 except 10 Creator's edition, you are required admin rights to create symlinks.
