Default Visual Basic 2005 Express

This is a different one... I just purchased Andrew Parsons starter kit and installed Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition. It installs fine. But, it does not show up as an installed program when I go to "Start > All Programs. It is not in the list. So I went to C:/programs files and locate the folder for it. But, I can't identify the program to start it. I checked them all. It's somewhere else in never never land I guess. I let it go to the defaults on my XP Pro. Where is the initiating program located? I don't know the name so I can't search. It reported the installation finished successfully. Any Idea's? Thanks

I found it!!!! I loaded on a vista machine, that did place it in the "Programs All" folder. The executable program is located...

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\vbexpress.exe"

I hope this helps someone else out.
