If you install the app from its detail page, there is a message telling you where the app now lives. The "Free" install button becomes a "Launch" button that opens the actual executable.

From a search results page (or "Featured Apps" listing page) we don't have any messaging after you click the install button, so it's not made obvious to user where the app lives if it was his/her first app installation.

Any ideas of how to show this to the end user? Tooltips? Message bubble?

Marking this P3 since the majority of app installs occur on the search/category pages.

Yes, please work on this bug :) Feel free to rethink the experience on the app details screen as well as the search and category screens. Things I would think about are:

• How is app installation messaged in the browser chrome? What messaging is already covered by the browser application that we might not necessarily need to include on the Marketplace website? For example do we need to show "Installed" if the browser chrome is messaging that to the user?
• The assumption with the current design on the details screen ("Launch this app from your Applications directory) is that the user doesn't know where the application was installed on their device. Is this true?
• If messaging is needed, where is the best place to put it so it is noticed by the user after she has clicked on the "Free" button? Will the message be permanent or will it animate in and then go away?

For a bit of comparative research I'd take a look on how the Chrome web store handles messaging when you install one of their apps on Chrome (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/apps).

Why can't we add the same message on this screen as on the App Details page? 

See the attachment here:

Works same way as App Details - if you navigate away and come back, the message is gone, but Launch button remains.
