Cannot install Visual Studio 2013 Express Web

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?
