Question My installed applications don't show up

Hello, I've recently tried to install various well known programs however they do not show up anywhere. Even in the home folder they do not show up. It's like they were never installed, but I know for a fact I watched them being installed in the terminal and everything. The application I am most concerned with is ies4linux(mainly because its in the way of my WoW playing). I did the whole cabextract (already have wine) and downloaded the ies4linux file. It runs the installer for it, however it doesn't show in the applications or home folder. Any help is greatly appreciated, Thank you.
