Right, looks like some old code now works on Windows, but, symlinks IIRC can't be created by non-admin users. The link isn't needed on Windows+VS, so I think if you comment out this line:

https://github.com/Geant4/geant4/blob/master/cmake/Modules/G4ConfigureGNUMakeHelpers.cmake#L814

that will resolve it.
