It's supposed to be in the Start menu. – Oliver Salzburg Mar 31 '14 at 8:52
    
As I wrote in Start-All programs there is nothing. I tried to repair and reinstall program and still nothing. – Jerry1 Mar 31 '14 at 8:55

Default install location

Assuming it was installed successfully, it should be located in %LocalAppData%\Apps\Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool. This bit of information is also provided in the official download page:

[...] the location where you installed the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool (e.g. C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Apps\Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool).

Source: Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool

Manual installation

If for whatever reason you're not able to install the program, follow these steps:

  1. Extract the Windows7-USB-DVD-tool.exe file using 7-Zip.
  2. Among the extract files there's one called Wudt.msi. Extract it through 7-Zip.
  3. Copy the IoWrapperDll and ToolExe files in whatever folder you like.
  4. Rename the copied files to IoWrapper.dll and Windows7-USB-DVD-Download-Tool.exe, respectively.

Keep in mind, if you run the installation with another account, the application will only show up for that account. My normal user account doesn't have local admin rights, so I use a second account with elevated rights to install applications. I did this and ran into the same problem. – Jeff Reddy Nov 25 '15 at 14:14
