I published my windows application and it created a setup.exe for me.  When I install it it creates a folder under start menu with a shortcut to my application, but I can't find where it installs!  I tried searching my C drive for the exe and it only gives me the ones in my publish folder. Where is this thing installed?

Right click and properties on the start menu shortcut doesn't tell me anything either.
