    First you should try doing a search if you don't even know where it installed to (I think its by default in the program files directory under Microsoft Visual Studio). Also, try reinstalling VS as perhaps there was a download error. Barring that you might try this MSDN thread (if you have FAT32). If none of that works, I really can't give you any advice.

    You didn't install the PSDK or installed it incorrecty. You can find it in the VS 2005 Express Edition download page.

    Yes, you need the Platform SDK after downloading visual studio express.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
