Impress yourself with "Express"

Okay, developer guys. Just go ahead and take a jumpstart with the free Express tools that were released a few days ago on TechEd Europe 2004. These are lightweight versions of the development tools (Whidbey/Yukon timeframe) especially built for hobbyists and informatics enthousiast to get to know the products better. Products include: the Express editions of Visual VB, C#, C++, J#; the web developer tool (a web project is not longer a child of a language products, it's just a web project that consist of multiple files written in various languages if you want to do so, more on this in later articles) and SQL Server 2005 Express Edition (a little brother of SQL Server 2005 with support for databases up to 4 GB in size; think of it as a small SQL Server and a big MSDE that includes the management tools).

I installed the VBExpress but finally after the download and install/setup no icons are displayed.. it looks like it is completely vanished from my machine.

Tried this on 2 different machine and both had the exact same outcome.

Anything special that needs to be done after installation?
