Apps cannot run from the SD. The only things that go there is music, ringtones and pictures.

As stated, apps cannot run from the microSD card

When downloaded, the are installed in main memory on the device, and could be visible to the user in one of a number of different locations on the device screen. If you have a downloads folder, the icon will typically appear there the first time you download an app. If you've moved the icon and do an upgrade, the icon will typically stay where you moved it.

That's the typical situation above. If it doesn't seem to be working that way for you, look around in all the folders, etc. Look in options > advanced > applications or options > applications and make sure the application is really installed.
