Installing programs not showing on Hard drive

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I cannot install anything! if i try to install a program, it installs and shows no problems, but when i look on the desltop for icon, its not there. if i look for where it should be installed, it is not there!

i noticed this first while installing progrma sfor FS2004. nothing was showing. i have no idea whats going on. there are no errors showing during installing. it gets to 100 percent, finish's, and says succesful, but nothing is there, nothing made it to the hard drive.lol.

searched on google but couldnt find any7thing. i have run malwarebytes, anti virus and thats ok,. i only just did a fresh install of windows a few weeks ago.

Have you tried the Program Files(x86) folder within your C drive (or windows installation drive) ? Also, as far as I remember, FS installs in the root directory of C:. Also, what other programs did you try installing ? Are they also not available in your program and features within control panel ?

i noticed this problem first when i was installing a couple add ons for flight sim 2004. i have fs on a seperate drive. ive tried install on both drives and nothing is installing, even though it says it is lol. absolutely no idea how to fix this. and yes, if i go into add/remove programs none of them are there. its weird aswel because after an install says complete, no space has been used up
