comment Windows 7 finding location of installed program
Finding the program in start menu defeats the purpose. Further, finding it in start menu a lot of times will show you a "Advertised Shortcut" instead of the direct shortcut. The original question was how to get the direct shorctut to the physical executable from the special "Advertised Shortcut" type.

comment Windows 7 finding location of installed program
+1 and it works, but this is terrible for security. If a suspicious application made its way on a computer, and you wanted to know what the shortcut points to without actually running it, Microsoft should have made this dead simple. But were left to our own devices jumping through hoops. How can we even guide little old grandma over the phone to do this. Rant over
