Missing file devenv.exe on SQL Server 2005 Express ToolKit. I can't not find it anywhere on my C drive

I installed SQL Server 2005 Express and SQL Server 2005 Express Toolkit from Microsoft. When I tried to open the SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio, I got the message that devenv.exe is missing. I search on Google and found the answer for it. To fix the problem, just search for devenv.exe file and redirect the path of the short cut to it. My problem is I search and I could not find that file anywhere in my C drive. I have Microsoft visual Studio .net 2003 and there's devenv.exe for VS 2003 (the path is Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003/common7/IDE/devenv.exe), but I don't think it is the right one for the BIDS in SQL Server 2005 Express
ToolKit. I uninstall and reinstall the software at least 10 time in different ways, but so far I could not find the file devenv.exe in my C drive. Please help
