Commands (ipconfig, gpupdate/force, ipconfig/all etc.) are not working in Command Prompt on Windows7

This issue occurs normally when your PATH environment variable is not set correctly. SO you have to follow below steps to resolve it;

1. In a command prompt window, type 

echo %path%

This should display the PATH environment variable. In particular, it should have the directories path added  C:\Windows\system32 and C:\Windows in it. If it doesn't, this is your problem.

To fix it, do this:

1. Right-click Computer and select Properties.
2. Click the Advanced system settings link on the left.
3. Click the Environment variables button.
4. Find Path in the System variables list box and click the Edit button.
5. Add those two directories, C:\Windows\system32 and C:\Windows separated by a semicolon and terminated by a semicolon, at the front of the path environment variable.
6. OK out of everything.

Now it should fix your issue & enjoy.

it should look like as shown in below fig;
