Assuming you have installed Tacview 1.4 or greater you can easily find the folder where it is installed by looking into the registry. Just look for the value [InstallLocation] in one of the following registry path:

Steam installation on a 64-bit system:
Code: [Select]
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Steam App 1174860
Stable on a 64-bit system:
Code: [Select]
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{0C8810C3-63D0-4B23-BAB3-257FF8AF8BCC}
Beta on a 64-bit system:
Code: [Select]
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{96BA4CFE-E018-44D2-B04D-4272A6C807E7}
Stable on a 32-bit system:
Code: [Select]
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{0C8810C3-63D0-4B23-BAB3-257FF8AF8BCC}
Beta on a 32-bit system:
Code: [Select]
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{96BA4CFE-E018-44D2-B04D-4272A6C807E7}
For maximum stability, it is recommended to look for Tacview in the following order:
  • Steam
  • Standalone stable
  • Standalone beta
