address on an interface in WinPE4.0/WinFE4.0. For example the following

netsh.exe interface ip show interfaces
netsh.exe interface ip show interface Ethernet
both work as expected.
I can also add a route on the interface in WinPE, e.g.:
netsh.exe interface ip add route 192.168.0.0/24 Ethernet

have also tried using the IF index instead of the interface name; still
no joy. Unfortunately I can't use dhcp in some applications because the
client broadcasts an announcement that I am present, which wouldn't be
I am wondering if there isn't maybe some dependency that is missing from
my winpe installation?
Anyone have any thoughts?
