      Also found this blog, it's the same to me with the Junction Point: MCL-5569

      I just did test it out myself on a Virtual Machine.
      An installation on a normal setup windows 10 works fine and the launcher starts normally.

      If there is a Junction Point in use for the users folder the Launcher is unable to start in foreground and stays as a zombie process in background.
      Funily it still creates the .minecraft folder in %appdata% and uses resources off from my system.

      Hope you can fix it. I wanna play Minecraft without being forced to push my Userfolder back to drive C: just for one game.
