Your interface is not "Local Area Connection", try this:

netsh interface ipv4 set address name="Loopback pseudo-interface 1" source=static address=

Or you should add network interface to virtual machine so that "Local area connection" actually shows up on list of interfaces, because it won't help you much to configure loopback adapter. ;)
