    Description

      Game launch crashes when using windows symbolic link for minecraftWorlds

      _____________

      Steps to Reproduce:

      1. Backup your minecraftWorlds before!
      2. Delete minecraftWorlds
        • rmdir /q /s "%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MinecraftUWP_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\games\com.mojang\minecraftWorlds"
          
      1. Delete TEST folder if exists
        • rmdir /q /s "%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MinecraftUWP_8wekyb3d8bbwe\TEST\minecraftWorlds"
          
      1. Create TEST folder
        • mkdir "%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MinecraftUWP_8wekyb3d8bbwe\TEST\minecraftWorlds"
          
      1. Create symlink
        • mklink /J "%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MinecraftUWP_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\games\com.mojang\minecraftWorlds" "%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MinecraftUWP_8wekyb3d8bbwe\TEST\minecraftWorlds"
          
      1. Start Minecraft App
      2. Create a new world

      Observed Results:
      Error,
      "There was a problem loading this world"

      Expected Results:
      No error, world should be created and placed in TEST folder

       

      There seems to have been a change in behaviour since version 1.17.34, before with symlink Minecraft app crashed on start, now it starts and crashes on world create.
