ServerSDX will then be located here:
Check please whether that is the case.

if yes:
The setup suggests C:\Program Files(x86)\SatPC32 as the program folder.
Therefore the  program will look for ServerSDX (by default) here:
C: \Program Files (x86)\SatPC32\ SDX\ServerSDX.exe

Try the following:  in menu Rotor Setup choose  item  Yaesu_GS-232 and 
click the upper Store button. Restart SatPc32. Click the Search button 
and navigate to C:  > SatPC32 > SDX and double click on ServerSDX  and 
then click the upper Store button again and restart SatPC32 once again.
