Getting local ip address

Hi,

I want to get the local IP address of the machine the setup is running. Is there an easy way to do this?

Regards,

J

There's probably some WMI query, or similar code, that you can execute in a custom action. However you'll quickly find that trying to answer the question raises several others. Such as "which IP address?" Many laptops in particular have both a wired and a wireless adapter, and each of them may have an IP address.

http://www.google.com/search?q=stackoverflow+get+ip+address+windows got me to http://stackoverflow.com/questions/122208/get-the-ip-address-of-local-computer which has various answers and raises the same question.

This depends on what you are trying to do. If you just need to access the host locally, then you should be able to use 127.0.0.1. Check here for some information on retrieveing the IP address
