Solved Route addition failed on Windows 7

May 24, 2011 at 18:12:34
Specs: Windows XP
I am trying to add some routes and some persistent routes on a Windows 7 laptop for some connectivity testing.
The route ADD command fails with the below error:
The route addition failed: The system cannot find the file specified.

I am verified on the internet that am using the correct syntax:
route ADD 10.224.1.192 MASK 255.255.255.255 127.0.0.1 METRIC 50 IF 127.0.0.1

Also I am running the command prompt as an local administrator on the windows 7 machine.

I havent had any luck with this on the Microsoft forums as well.

Can someone please help me with this one.

Thanks in advance

✔ Best Answer
Use route /? on windows 7 command prompt, to get the correct syntax.

But, as far as I know, you can't add a route to 127.0.0.x, but you can add a route to your local ip address.

Simply use:
route ADD 10.224.1.192 MASK 255.255.255.255 your_ip METRIC 50
