Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler

I just downloaded and installed the free 64-bit version of the Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler (Windows 7). The problem I am having is there is no icon on the desktop  and it is not listed in the programs menu. How do I start the program?

where did you install it ?

by default it should be in the program files directory under oracle/bin

In the directory where you've unzipped it, there is an executable datamodeler64.exe - start that one.

@Geert Gruwez: I selected the default installation location. There is no oracle/bin directory in either program files or program files (x86).

@Gerwin Jansen: I have already run the executable datamodeler64.exe to start it.

It sounds like I do not have to be concerned that there is no oracle/bin directory in either program files or program files (x86). Do you agree?

oracle/bin is something you would find if you've installed an Oracle client (or server), depending on where you would have installed that. SQL Datamodeler is a separate package. However: since you are going to develop a datamodel, you probably will be connecting to an Oracle database, there you need a client.
