Windows 7: ShellFolderFix installation issue

ShellFolderFix installation issue

I just installed ShellfolderFix on a PC running W7-64 bits (Professional). I installed the 64 bits Zip version, extracting the ZIP file and then launching ShellFolderFixUI.exe. I got a window with the various options to be selected. I asked the utility to start automatically at logon.

But ShellFolderFix does not appear neither in the programs list in the Start menu nor in the Programs and functionalities list in the Configuration panel.

What mistake did I do ?
Thanks for the help

The zip version is likely a portable version which means it is not installed. Therefore it will not appear in Programs nor in the start menu. Does it start at logon?

Problem resolved

Many thanks pbcopter for your response. You're right.

And, in the meantime, I discovered that in "Start" - "All programs", under the folder "Start", there is a program "ShellFolderFix". And ShellFolderFix works.
