[Windows 7 x64] Find FFMPEG location ?

So, I have ffmpeg already installed on my machine,
however I can't for the life of me figure out *where*

Expanding the %path% variable shows: no ffmpeg there

Not in the Usual "Programs" Folder, or C: either.

Any way to find out where on my machine ffmpeg resides ?

Thanks in advance:

Maybe it is there but in the form of a (symbolic) link? Search the whole disk(s) recursively for ffmpeg.exe using the file manager.

I hope this helps.

Why do you want to know? ffmpeg is often installed as part of another application. My Windows 7 system has sooooo many copies and different versions/releases of ffmpeg they are almost too many to list.

However, assuming that the 'ffmpeg' files have not been renamed (disguised) for some reason you could open a command prompt (Start>Accessories>Command Prompt), then select a disk, ensure you are at the top of the structure, and issue a command line search.

Code:
C: (or D: or whatever drive)
cd \
dir ffmpeg* /s

If your system is anything like mine the list will be long. You might find it necessary to redirect/capture the output for later viewing.

Or have you tried that already?
