[wix-users] How to get system ip address in wix

there is no "system's IP address". The system can have (and usually does 
have) multiple network interfaces with each having a different IP 
address. So there cannot be a variable à la COMPUTERNAME providing *the* 
IP address.
The best you could do, I guess, is asking a DNS server for the 
address(es) mapped to your host name. This way you get an address that 
can be used to reach the system from external.
Whatever way you choose, it will require some custom code, e.g. in a 
custom action, unless there is a WiX extension that can do this for you 
I am not aware of.

You may want to play around with ipconfig and nslookup to get a feeling 
for the matter.
