Command Prompt command <ipconfig> not working

Q: Command Prompt command <ipconfig> not working

when I open up my command prompt and type 'ipconfig' without the ' and press enter it returns the line:
'ipconfig' is nto recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file

I am trying to find out the information I need in order to set up a static IP Address for port forwarding

Preferred Solution: Command Prompt command <ipconfig> not working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Command Prompt command <ipconfig> not working

In order to set up a static ip address internally, you'll need to either tell your router or your computer not to use automatic DHCP and instead to use a specific IP address.

Go to the System Tray (Notification Area)
Click the Network icon
Click 'Open Network and Sharing Center'
Click the 'Change adapter settings'

Selec the connnection for which you'd like to use a static IP
Right click it
Click 'Properties'
Select 'Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)'

Select 'Use the following IP address':

In the 'IP Address' field, insert the IP you'd like to use.

Note: The IP you use must be within the router's list of acceptable IP addresses. It's usually a list between to


If you're trying to set up an external static ip you'll need to pay your isp extra for one.

Dear All,

I've recently upgraded my work PC from Windows 98 to Windows XP, and later this year I'll probably be upgrading the rest of our PCs in my organisation.

We have Active Directory and Exchange set up on the Win2000 Server which is quite new to me.
Every time I start my PC it doesn't connect to anything on the network. I have no Outlook, Internet or anything networked based.

To fix it I have to open a Command Prompt window and type this:
ipconfig /release
then ipconfig /renew
Then everything works perfectly.
Anyone know why this happens and how I can fix it please.

Many Thanks,

Ben Handley

I have a utility I run on some customers' machines that requires being run from safe mode. I already have the utility automated via batch, and would like to just run one SFX app and move on to the next machine, knowing that this app will reboot the machine into safe mode w/ command prompt, run my utility, and reboot the machine back into normal mode (the standard shutdown -r -t 01 is easy enough, but there are no modal options!). Also, if this can be done, how would I then make sure that the current user logs in automatically, rather than have safe mode stop at the log-in screen?

The utility in question is a simple "Common Software Package" which includes some software such as Reader and Flash. Some of the software included cannot be installed while an antivirus is running (at least any that have tamper-protection) due to the registry editing involved, but are completely positive in nature (one such software package simply checks the current registry vs. a backup it takes on each shutdown to look for any discrepancies, adjusted for installed software, of course). The packages do not require Windows Installer service to be running, so I have found SM w/ CP to be the best option.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

I am writing a VBA macro in Excel and have hit a wall. I am trying to get excel to open a command prompt and make it execute a command. The problem I am having is if I try to do anything but open another program, it throws an error back at me.

I can open the command prompt using:
Call Shell("cmd.exe" & dosCmd, vbNormalFocus)
I can also open Acrobat which is the program I need using:
Shell "C:\program files\adobe\acrobat 9.0\acrobat\acrobat.exe", vbNormalFocus
However if I simply wanted to open a PDF file, I have the code to that without opening a command prompt.

I need to open the PDF document on a specific page, and to my knowledge the only way to do this (apart from manually) is to use the command prompt. However I have no idea how to get VBA to put the command in the command prompt, hit enter and then close the prompt.

There are 2 commands that need to be executed in DOS (I'm not sure if there is a way to combine the commands)

They are:

cd c:\program files\adobe\acrobat 9.0\acrobat

start acrobat.exe /A "page=10=Open Actions" "M:\Full Scores\allegro.pdf
These open the pdf document called allegro on page 10.

I am completely stuck. Out of ideas. I've searched the length and breadth of the internet and can find nothing to point me in the right direction. So I was hoping one of you fine people could. Thank you so much, James

I'm trying to split a .flv file by using flvparse, which is a Windows-only, command-line interface tool. I did get through to the directory by following instructions posted on another forum, however, command prompt doesn't seem to recognize the the .exe file. I'm an absolute novice at this, any help would be really appreciated!

Attaching a CP s/s, and here are the instructions I'm trying to follow (copy pasted from the forum)


For trimming the beginning and/or ending of videos, you can use FLVParser (http://dev2.avacast.com/FLVparser.zip ).
FLVParser is a Windows-only, command-line interface tool. After you unzip it, move its folder to C:\ for ease of use. Also for ease of use, copy/move the .flv file you wish to edit into the FLVParse folder.
To make edits, you need to know the in and out points where you want the edits. Use FLVPlayer to find these points. FLVPLayer only lists times in total number of seconds, not HH:MM:SS, but don't worry, FLVParser can handle that. In the FLVParse directory create a new blank text file called: CuePointFile.dat
This is the file FLVParser uses to edit from. Open it in NotePad, and enter the in point and out point, separated by a single blank space, like so: 2525 5150
Save, and close the file. Open up the command line interface and go to the FLVParse directory: cd C:\FLVParse
In the command line, enter this to edit the flv:
flvparse.exe FileToSplit.flv CuePointFile.dat
Your file will be split into ... Read more

Hello everyone

Recently a problem has arisen with my system.

Previously I have been doing work that requires me to unplug my network connection and I need to check my IP address each time I plug it in again. I guess it's not set for static IP.
Anyways to do this I usually go into Command Prompt and type 'ipconfig'

Now however I just get "'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".

The directory is the same as its always been, I can change it but it doesn't seem to matter what it is.

I've checked many other posts and is there something possibly wrong with my PATH variable? I used the command 'echo %PATH%' and it works, the list it gives is very garbled however.

I'm not sure what might have made this problem arise, but I would greatly appreciate any help.

Hi All,

I'm running a program that parses .csv files and then changes them into ._OK files. This process takes longer when there are a large number of *.OK files in the folder where the files being converted are located. To remedy this I occasionally manually run this command:

del *._OK
While pointing at the proper folder.

Is there a way to have this command continuously run, kind of like out ping -t [IP ADDRESS HERE] continuously pings a certain IP address?



A:Command Prompt: Repeat del command continuosly

I'm running a program that parses .csv files and then changes them into ._OK files.

I take it then the conversion program will not accept an output folder other than the current or working directory? More detail what you actually do with the output files might be helpful.

If i run CMD from the run bar by typing in its Dir then i can run ping and all the other commands or if i change the dir to sytem32 and run the command it works as well. I'm thinking that the paths for the cmd files have somehow gotten messed with and I'm not really sure how to change those so any advice on how to correct those paths would be greatly appreciated.

If you have changed anything in your path it may break the link. Type "path" in cmd and look to be sure the location of cmd (usually C:\windows\system32...) is included.

Alternatively are the two files ipconfig and winstat there at all.

I have used the Ipconfig utility before with the Command Prompt window with no ill effects.

I tried to use a little while ago and recieved the basic error of not a "'Ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

I also tried the Ipconfig.exe command in the run dialogue box on the Start tab menu. When I did this, the Command Prompt window flashes on then off. I did get a micro second glimpse of the screen and it appeared to have listed the parameters for Ip settings.

Recently after a Windows defender update (about 3 days ago) I stopped being able to run file extensions from a Windows XP command prompt. (Coincidental or not I don't know)

Before typing 'todo.txt' at a command prompt brought up todo.txt in notepad.exe. Currently if I type todo.txt at a command prompt it will respond with "The system cannot execute the program specified."

typing any of these at a command prompt
results in the same "The system cannot execute the program specified."

Double clicking on any of those files works from windows explorer.

I need them to work from a .bat file, .cmd file or the command prompt.

Anything that ends in .exe, .com or .bat works as expected from a command prompt.

or Agnitum Outpost Security Suite performing some tricky antivirus disabling file extentions type stuff.

Hello Everybody!

I don't know if this is a real issue, or just one of those "What the . . . .!!" situations. You judge.

I was working on a batch file that combines two .txt (ASCII?) files created in Notepad to create a composite file, and I noticed something really interesting. (And yes, when someone talks about doing something and the result is "really interesting", it's time to duck and hunt cover! )

Assume that there are two text files: "This.txt" and "That.txt", and they contain the text "This[cr-lf]" and "That[cr-lf]", where [cr-lf] is used to indicate a newline generated by hitting the "Enter/Return" key on the keyboard.

If you look at the files with a hex editor, what you see is something like this:
The file "This.txt" contains the text "This" followed by 0x0D0A, which are the ascii codes for CR and LF.
The file "That.txt" contains the text "That" followed by the same CR and LF characters.
Note that these two files contain nothing else.

Issue I discovered:
When I execute the command copy /y ".\This.txt"+".\That.txt" ".\This&That.txt", I do not get the simple concatenation of the two files, which is what I would expect. Instead I get the two files concatenated, (including the trailing CR/LF's as I would expect), but also one additional character, the hex character for a right-arrow symbol - 0x1A. In e... Read more

By folder I assume you mean Key. The /f parameter you use should overwrite any current value. Are you saying that doesn't work?

If you remove /f and a value already exist for a key, you'll be prompted if you want to overwrite the current value. That's a good way of testing this.

I tried removing the network adapter driver and reinstalling it - no internet

I tried all netsh commands - no internet

I have no programs that control ports or firewall.

I need help please!

Hi, I'm wondering how to make a batch file so that I can launch the ipconfig /all command right off my desktop. I know how to get to the command prompt and running, but I want to just put a shortcut and/or write a batch file with just a click.

I can get the command prompt up. I open a new text file and type: C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe and then I save the text file to .bat and I click on it and my command prompt comes up. I can't seem to get ipconfig /all to come up at all. Thanks in advance!

Cool way to do ipconfig (or any dos command)
I just learned this one today I can’t believe that after 20 or more years of playing around with computers that I have not found it sooner. Whenever I do a dos command and want to save it I do this

ipconfig /all >> C:\tcp.txt
( If want to run that command you have to run it as administrator ) Then I would open tcp.txt and copy and paste that to where I actually wanted it . Today I found out how to skip that step and send it directly to the clipboard

ipconfig /all | clip
and now I can just right click and paste it wherever I like

And here is the result

A:Cool way to do ipconfig (or any dos command)

Thanks for sharing. Nice find. I did not know that either.
You can use code boxes in your posts to prevent lines of info from wrapping at just the wrong point:

ipconfig /all | clip

This is how I saw the info wrap in your post:

It would be worse if I were reading your post via cell phone.

I know very little about computers, but i was told that in order to make it so that my windows 7 labtop could receive wireless internet at my work, they needed my 'mac address'.

I was told to click on "Start" and then type "cmd" in the "run/search" box, and then right-click "command prompt" and click "run as administrator".

they then told me to enter "ipconfig/all" in the command prompt, and this would give me the info that i need...

and this is what shows up on the command prompt screen:

"'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

I have tried running command prompt without running it 'administratively', i have tried 'ipconfig /all' 'ipconfig / all' 'ipconfig', you name it... the same message shows up saying that it is not recognized as a command... any help would be greatly appreciated...

A:ipconfig/all not recognized as command - HELP!

ipconfig/all is the correct command for windows 7. ipconfig/? should list all the different syntaxes that can be used. If the PC is infected with malware the executable could have been deleted or renamed to prevent you from using it.The standard path is %WINDIR%\System32\ipconfig.exe (which usually resolves to C:\WINDOWS\System32\ipconfig.exe). Have a look and see if the ipconfig.exe file is where it's supposed to be, or do a search for it. You may have to enable show hidden files to see it.

Okay, stupid newbie question (yeah, another one!)...

I was trying to look-up my IP configuration in a command prompt as instructed on the ZA board, but I did it wrong... I was supposed to type "command" in the run box, THEN type in "ipconfig /all", but I just typed in "ipconfig /all" in the Run prompt... I tried this twice before realizing my mistake. Each time, I could see the DOS window pop up for half a second and then disappear, and then nothing.

Did I mess anything up by doing this?

Did it actually do anything? (I did see the DOS window flash open for a second...)

Thanks for the help!

A:Using ""ipconfig /all" Command -- Did It Wrong

No you did not hurt anything. All you did was make a information request that could not be processed from the Run dialog box.I alway just type cmd in the Run dialog box and ipconfig /all at the prompt in the command line window.ipconfig options

Intalled Linksys DFE-530TX+ NIC on desktop PC running W98se. Install went smooth, drivers look okay but the command ipconfig shows no ethernet adapter, IP address =, subnet mask = The command winipcfg shows PPP Adapter but no PCI adapter. I can ping the NIC ( but cannot ping the router nor other PCs.

I've seen similar problems discussed on the site but no ultimate solution - that I could find. I've seen references to the TCP/IP stack and winsock registry issues but they seem to be associated with WinXP not 98se. Would appreciate any help / suggestions. Thx, Bob

System = Dell Optiplex XP SP3

In Network Connections, wireless PCI card is seen fine, and it can see available wireless networks.

any ideas - anyone?

When using a command prompt, I can no longer use the term ipconfig, as i get the message : " 'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. "

I am assuming that this is some sort of virus that i have that will limit my command prompt... can anybody give me a hand? I have run adaware 07 and the problem was still not fixed.

Hi, I'm new to the forum and know just enough about pc's to be dangerous. I'm working on a friend's pc and am trying to figure this problem out on my own, but no luck so far.

When I type "cmd" (w/o quotes) in the Run box and then type ipconfig, ipconfig /all, ping command, etc., I get the following message: ipconfig (and the others mentioned above) is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

I'm doing this cuz she's been having intermittent connection problems and I thought I might try this to see if I can do some diagnosing. I suspect phone line problems as I've used my SpeedStream 5200 broadband modem at her house and the problem still persists. but both her modem and mine work flawlessly at my house. She also uses the same model modem as I do. Since I can't get the cmd box commands to work, could there also be software (Windows XP) problems at work also?

However, I would like to get the ipconfig, etc. commands to work.

Any helpful thoughts/ideas will be greatly appreciated.

it will bring up a lot more information
