I think that you have downloaded the wrong file....  DDESAT32 is an 
interface program between Wisp and SatPC32.

The upgrade of SatPC32 itself is performed by downloading the "demo" 
(English version for North American users, in your case) file 
SATPCSETUP_A.ZIP, unzipping it, and then running Setup.exe.  It will install 
over versions 12.3 and up, but should be installed into a separate folder 
for earlier versions.  If you are a registered user, it will import your 
registration from the prior version.

I upgraded the other night, and it went without a hitch.......
