Cannot install Visual Studio 2013 Express Web

Posted on 2014-11-28
Last Modified: 2014-12-04
I installed VS2013.  It finished, and said I needed to restart the computer. I did that. Once it restarted, I went looking for VS2013.  It was no place to be found.  I have 2008, 2010 and 2012 installed, and they are all easy to find.  So, I tried to re-install it.  I was asked if I wanted to uninstall it or repair it.  I chose repair. Four hours later, it said it had repaired VS 2013, and I should restart the computer.  I restarted it, but again, it is no place to be found.

Any suggestions?

No such file 'devenv.exe' in the folder.

I installed VS 2013 web express.

Saw a file named VWDExpress.exe and clicked on it.  That seems to have done the trick.  Do you agree that was the right file to click on?

That wasn't quite the right folder, but it put me on the right path.
