Yes. Among others, there is mklink: Using Symlinks in Windows Vista

A good blog article on the subject, if you're interested in the history, is here.

There's exhaustive documentation (from the API perspective) on Symbolic Links and Windows at MSDN: Symbolic Links

Be aware that mklink is not available in PowerShell. It is a built-in command available only in cmd.exe. The PowerShell Community Extensions has a New-SymLink cmdlet in it if you need this support in PowerShell.

You could also call cmd /c mklink ... which might be a little less intrusive than installing PSCX :-). – Joey Feb 21 '10 at 11:54
