I have an app that at first launch pops up a dialog box asking for the computer name. I am looking for a way using installshield 12 to have the msi dredge for the computer name and automatically populate an ini or reg entry. Thanks.

No "dredging" necessary. You can just use the standard MSI property ComputerName and reference that property in the registry and/or inifile tables, as needed.

Yes, but you should use [ComputerName].. resolving the enviro variable is a little more complicated.
