Where does the "Character Map" program executable reside in Windows XP?

I want to point a short cut to it. I did so via right clicking on the menu icon, but when I try to use it, I get the message that it cannot be found.

%SystemRoot%\system32\charmap.exe

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map
