O wait, I thought that was it, but misspelt ipconfig. It works with or without space.
Check instead the path & report the result here.

The ipconfig file should be in one of the paths listed (e.g. C:\Windows\System32\) when you type path, as the link given by jvuz indicates. If it's not there, then "sfc /scannow" might help, but more important is why it disappeared ...so a virus/spyware check could be necessary (using AVG, Ewido, Spybot,...).

If the path is not what it should be, then the second link also has a fix.

Now:
echo %systemRoot%
--Then if %systemRoot% is stated as being c:\windows
c:
cd %systemRoot%
dir /s ipconfig.exe

--Does it find the file?
