When I go in the command prompt and enter C:\php\> php index.php that contain the 
symlink command, it work. But outside the command prompt (in a web page) it don't 
work. I've looked about changing the local policies for the "Create symbolic 
links" I've changed Administrators for everyone and this is not working.

Permissions issue, fix them and you will be able to create symbolic links.

Do you know what permissions to change? I've disable the UAC and I've gaven the 
permission to everyone to create symbolic links (in the local policies). Thank 
you.

I've changed the default IUSR user for anonymous authentication to a local user 
account. By the way, I've added the same user in the local policies for creating 
symbolic links. I don't think this is the good way (for security reason), but it 
work.
