Then change the user PATH variable. Or change the PATH variable
temporarly in a command line. Both also works in systems without
admin rights. 
In my editor (winedt) I can change the environment variable locally
through a macro and so switch between miktex, texlive 2013, 2014 and
now 2015 with two keystrokes. I can even run the systems in parallel
in cmd windows and compare their output. I doubt that this would be
so easy if links/junctions were involved.
