Hi,
the route which you are adding is perfectly alright. i have found no any human error. but in Windows 7 or other higher OS required Administrative privelages to accomplish this task.

you must open command prompt with Administrative privilage. Right Click on Command in menu and open with administrative rights. than perform this operation again and let me know if it completes.

regards

Of course we have to assume that
a) you have some value instead of X
b) you mean to issue     route -p add 172.17.1.X mask 255.255.255.0 172.17.0.X
