I have a piece of Software that requires a Loopback Adapter on Windows.

Is there some sort of scripting or a batch file that could automate installing and setting up a Loopback Adapter with a certain IP/Subnet Mask?

See How to install the Microsoft Loopback Adapter in Microsoft Windows Server 2003.

It describes how to use the devcon utility to install it as follows :

devcon.exe install %windir%\inf\netloop.inf *msloop

devcon may already be installed on your computer, and if not, better make sure you get the right version, or at least test the download that is included in the article.
