The requested operation requires elevation. Windows 7 Route Add
Getting the following error while adding the route on windows 7
route -p add 172.16.1.0 Â mask 255.255.0.0 192.168.1.254
I recive this message:
The requested operation requires elevation.
Try to run the Command Prompt with elevated privileges before running the “route” command. Simply right-click the “Command Prompt” and choose to “Run as Administrator”. That will initiate the UAC prompt for elevated privileges. If you are a member of the local administrator-group you should simply have to select continue, otherwise you need to enter the administrative password.
