ipconfig /release won’t change the IP, it merely releases the current IP assignment.

ipconfig /renew *might* change the IP, but it really depends on the ISP.

Sure, I can use either on Win7 here, no problem. What does ipconfig /? return? Or even just ipconfig? Do you see your TCP/IP configuration?
