Dim WshShell, oExec
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("%comspec% /c ipconfig")

do while oExec.stdOut.AtEndOfStream <>true
      strLine=oExec.stdOut.Readline

      if instr(strLine,"Address")>0 then
            'found
            strIP=StrLine
            exit do
      end if
loop

msgbox mid(strIP,(instr(strIP,":")+2))
