    I just upgraded to Paragon Hard Disk Manager 12 Suite from the 2008 Suite, and following the install, Win 7 does not show the application in the Start window (as happens for all apps that load in the "Program Files (x86)" folder instead of the "Program Files" folder). My question is that there are many executables in the application's "program" and "program2" folders. Which one launches the application user interface? Some of the most likely guesses include:

    1) explauncher.exe
    2) launcher.exe
    3) plauncher.exe

    Any input would be welcome, before I just start going down the list, trying them out.

    AMRooke: The program you want is "launcher.exe" in the Program folder.

    I have been using Win7x64 for almost two years and have never had installed programs not show up in the Start Menu, regardless of whether they were in the Programs folder or the Programs (x86) folder. I have worked on many x64 computers and I have never seen that issue. Very strange.

    Sounds like something is interfering with your x86 installs.

    Hope this helps. Have a great day.
