I'm using win7 prof 64bit.
I've symlinked a word document but when I open it via the symlink and change the contents
I'm getting an error message "Word cannot complete the save due a file permission error" while trying to save it at the symlink's location,
which is presented automatically.
When I try to save it in its original location there's another message saying:
"Word cannot save this file because it is already open elsewhere".

Is there any way to still save it?
