first time setting up. Can't execute the EXTIO.exe file

When I double click on the downloaded executable file called SDRplay_EXTIO_Installer_V3.8.3.exe nothing happens. Not acting like an exe file. All suggestions highly welcomed! Thank you. Charles Redwood City, CA Ready to set this up as a panadapter on my K3.

After locating the installer, you want to right click (not the default left click) on the HDSDR_installer.exe and select Run as administrator. After the setup is complete you can now install the EXT/IO from SDRPlay - see https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7434avup8mrkzti/AACIY6Bq0UwZKQGCALpu76cka/RSPHDSDR.pdf?dl=0 for the instructions. If you still have problems just contact us at support@sdrplay.com for help.

Regarding Panadapter options for the K3...

There are many alternatives for CAT control...At the moment most people are using Ham Radio Deluxe, N4PY or Omnirig for CAT control. More recently we see people using DXLab as well

Some links: http://www.n4py.com/
http://www.ve7ed.com/omni-rig.html
http://www.dxatlas.com/omnirig/
http://ham-radio-deluxe.com/supported_radios.html
http://www.dxlabsuite.com/

For use with DXLab, there's an active Yahoo group where W4TV recently posted this useful advice:

SDRplay is supported by HDSDR: <http://www.hdsdr.de/>. HDSDR
will work with SDRplay in either "antenna based" (connected to
the transceiver "RX Ant" Loop) or IF based (connected to an IF
output) from the transceiver.

The general configuration is shown in the fourth block diagram here: http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/SDRInteroperation
In general one would connect HDSDR to Omni-Rig and connect Omni-Rig to Commander's Secondary CAT Serial port through a virtual "null modem".
