[wix-users] How to use <Variable/> in a DownloadUrl

I'm trying to build an exe you can run and pass an argument in via command line and that would alter the downloadUrl.

I have a variable

<Variable Name="ServerName" Value="localhost" Type="string" bal:Overridable="yes"/>

However when I try to use it in the DownloadUrl it doesn't get the variable it just prints the [ServerName]


Yet when I use it on the LicenseUrl it works
