    I've been using this gui front end for IPCONFIG on windows xp-sp3 for a long time. I just moved to a Win-7-64 machine. I downloaded WNTIPCFG.EXE from M$oft. It fails with "Fatal Error Cannot read IP configuration. IPCONFIG from a CMD window seems to work fine. anybody know anything about problems with"Wntipcfg.exe on windows seven?"
