Hello Larry,
I suppose you run V. 12.8 or 12.8a.
>From the list in menu "Rotor Setup" choose the item "Yaesu GS-232". Save the
change with the upper "Save" button and restart SatPC32.

The program  stores path and filename of ServerSDX.Exe in the aux. file
"RotorServer.SQF" in the SatPC32 data folder. The path of the data folder is
shown in a foot line of menu "Satellites". RotorServer.SQF can be opened
with Notepad.

It should now contain the following line:

C:\Program Files\SatPC32\SDX\ServerSDX

Does the program now start ServerSDX?

If not, try whether it works better when you start SatPC32 with the option
"Run as Administrator" (Right click on the file name and choose that

73s, Erich, DK1TB
