The requested operation requires elevation (Windows Vista)

We had a problem today in the office with a new laptop that is running windows vista.

Whenever we tried “ipconfig /release” or “ipconfig /renew” – we would get an error “The requested operation requires elevation”.

We finally found the solution, instead of simply opening a command prompt like before, we now need to run the command prompt as administrator.

To do this, all you need to do is go to:
All Programs > Accessories > right click Command Prompt and click Run as administrator!

I hope this helps you !
