This thread should help

Also search for "Using Windows Installer Properties to Dynamically Modify Text Files" in Help.

One way to get the IP Address is to do a custom action that uses IPCONFIG to retrieve the IP Address.
Can you add a text box for the user to enter the Instance name in one of your dialogs?
