WinIPCfg

Windows NT 4.0 had WIPCfg32.exe, and Windows 95/98/ME had WinIPCfg.exe. For some reason, this utility was removed from Windows 2000/XP. This program is a clone of WinIPCfg.exe, written for Windows XP. For those of you who are unfamiliar with WinIPCfg, it looks like this:

  • gateway problem

    Hello, On WinMe the gateway is not displayed, but on Win XP it is. Do you know why? Thanks.

      Actually the gateway is not displayed for a wireless adapter, but using the winipcfg original application it is displayed.

    The utility runs great on W2k, but generates an exception on XP at startup.

    • Exception on Win2000

      Posted by mpauley1955 on 11/09/2005 09:24am

      I also got an exception on startup, but running Win 2000. 
      The problem seems to be when you have multiple adapters. 
      In the CWinIPCfgDlg::GetNICs routine you use GetAdaptersInfo() to load a buffer with the adapter info, then load the combobox item data with it. 
      You step through the returned data as if it were an array:
      
      	// Add each entry to the combobox
      	for(int i = 0; i < nCount; ++i)
      	{
      		CString sName = pIPAI[i].Description;
      		m_cbNetCard.AddString(sName);
      		m_cbNetCard.SetItemData(i, (DWORD_PTR)&pIPAI[i]);
      	}
      
      but it is actually a linked list. I changed it to this:
      
      // pIPAI is a pointer to a linked list of IP_ADAPTER_INFO structures.
      // The last valid one has it's "Next" member set to NULL.
      // Just walk the chain...
      	int i;
      	while ( pIPAI != NULL )
      	{
      		CString sName = pIPAI->Description;
      		i = m_cbNetCard.AddString(sName);
      		m_cbNetCard.SetItemData(i, (DWORD_PTR)pIPAI);
      
      		pIPAI = pIPAI->Next;
      	}
      
      and it works fine now.

      Can you give me more details? I have dozens of users on the networks that I support using this right now. If there is an issue, I would like to figure it out.

      This is for those of us that don't use command line (most of the users I support).
