Remote Desktop Client is for connecting to another computer. So, you want to find the address of that other computer? If so, is it on your LAN (Local Area Network) or somewhere else and you intend to connect to it over the internet?

You haven't told us what you are trying to do. Do you want to find your computer's address? Or your public IP address (which may or may not be the same thing)? Or the address of another computer on your LAN? Or the public IP address of a computer elsewhere?

And, after you get whatever address, what do you intend to do with the address?

nevermind, sorry for wasting your time, but i just did some research and my software is not compatible with Remote Desktop Client, so all of this is useless, Sorryy, but thanks for the effort
