I'm running Visual Studio Community Edition 2017. The About page tells me that I have version 15.7.3.
It doesn't show in Programs.
AdvancedInstaller tries to install over VS 2015 which also doesn't show in Programs.
Under C:\Program Files I have Microsoft Visual Studio 8, 10.0 and 12.0.
Under C:\Program Files x86 I have Microsoft Visual Studio 8, 9.0, 10.0, 11.0, 12.0 and 14.0.
Uninstalling VS2010 looks for an installation package I don't have.

How can I find out what I am running and where it is?

Secondary question - do they do this deliberately to mess with our heads?

What I have tried:

Screaming. Googling. Looking through all installed programs.

If you want to know the location of the Visual Studio currently running, you can look it up in the Windows task manager, right click it and then select "Open file location".

For an overview of the relation between the product name (e.g. Visual Studio 2017) and its version number (e.g. 15.x), have a look at this table[^].
