If you want to know why this is not possible, the explanation is simple: CON is a reserved word in the Windows and the underlying DOS system. It has been like that for the last 25 years, and before that, in the the predecessor of MS-DOS, called CP/M.

"con" is a _old_ MS-DOS stuff!
So can create in DOS itself.

Start|Run|command.com/cmd.exe
mkdir C:con
mkdir \.C:con


copy C:junksol.exe C:con
dir C:con

rmdir /s C:con

Also works with other reserved device names: AUX/PRN/COMx/LPTx..etc
