When I run ipconfig in Windows 2000 Pro, the ipconfig window stays on the desktop only a fraction of a second before closing immediately.
What is going wrong? Is the file corrupted or am I doing something wrong?
Thank you for your help,

You are not doing anything wrong so to speak. However try this.

Start > Run cmd

Now in the command window that pops up do ipconfig from there. The console will stay open so you can see the results.

just to explain what happened... if you run a console-based command from Start>Run, the console windows will close as soon the command finished, i.e. right after the command pure out output an return to command promt...
everything else... follow CrazyOne... :)

dbessis: CrazyOne gave you the right answer, to elaborate a little on their comment.
Once you hit the start/run command and type cmd this will bring up what appears to be a dos prompt window. From here you can do the commands ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew, the way I do this use F3 after you do the release and backspace the release to rene. But its user preference. Dave

Is there another Windows program than ipconfig that gives the same kind of information? I had the feeling I was using it because I did not need cmd. I have completly forgotten what it could be.
