I wonder why would you be concern about this limit !!
I can't imagine that you will have that much of interfaces or NICs  as destination, and having that much of routing  or applications with different static routing needs?
of course you can always say that it is not my business :)

Static routes are stored in "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\PersistentRoutes
Each static route entry is stored in a separate REG_SZ registry entry.
As far as I know there is no limitation for the amount of registry entries within one key.

Windows has no limitation in terms of the size of the routing table.

The only limitation could be the amount of memory as every new route takes a small amount of memory but as these days memory should not be an issue anymore I would say that there is no limitation.

We've answered your question, undoubtedly, so deleting it is rude, and I have to object.

We are spending time and putting effort in trying to answer your question the best we can.
So this response where you want to delete the question so you won't have to give points is not a good thing.

The answer from Qlemo and me that no limitations are there is certainly the correct one.
Please reconsider...
