Dim WshShell,cmd_line
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.shell")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(Session.Property("INSTALLDIR") & "<location of the .cfg file", 1) ' check whether the file resides under INSTALLDIR else need to edit it
cmd_line = objFile.ReadAll
cmd_line = Replace(cmd_line, "<HostName>", WshShell .ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%COMPUTERNAME%"))

Note:<Provide the name which you want to replace it value with ,this will replace wherever the value of Hostname to %COMPUTERNAME% to get the desired result.

Careful! The posted script replaces every occurence of the word, which may not be the effect you want.
