Each time I try to add a new route
(route add 172.24.0.0 mask 255.255.0.0 172.21.0.4). I get the following error message: The requested operation requires elevation.
 

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

This is one of Windows 7's many more annoying habits. Elevation is to Administrator level and to find an elevated Command Prompt you need to go into Windows\System 32 and right click on the file cmd.exe then scroll to RunAs Administrator. The command form that opens will then accept your command.
