Or you can try the Netsh.exe Command Line.
From a command prompt, type netsh, and then press ENTER.
From the netsh prompt, type dhcp server ipaddress (where ipaddress is the IP address of the DHCP server that you want to configure), and then press ENTER.
Type set dnscredentials username domain password (where username domain password is the user account information for the account under which you want the DHCP Server to run), and then press ENTER. You can use any valid existing user account for this, such as a Domain User account. The account should not be set to expire or have any other restrictions.
Type quit, and then press ENTER to exit.
