This probably started with the Mac OS thing. My understanding is that post High Sierra it will be just 64 bit and they will start dropping support for 32 bit so very possible that on a Mac lots of (some?) 32 bit apps may not work.

When are we going to see 128 bit OS's :)

So forgive me but is it the case that the 32 bit elecraft utilities will not

a 64 bit version of the utilities. If the 32 bit utilities  do run on a 64 bit 
OS then what's the point? There is no point. A 32 bit version of their 
utilities will work just as well as just fast over a rs232 connection no matter 
if the OS is 64 bit 128 bit or 256 bit. So the question is will these utilities 
not run on a 64 bit OS? They are 32 bit and run just fine on 64 bit windows..

Yes - you are correct. It didn’t occur to me when I installed it that it 
shouldn’t run due to the different architecture.
Turns out that the first thing I installed to the fresh installation of 
Raspbian was Exagear Desktop to test with a different application (a windows 
one.) I had thought that you had to tell ED to start the 686 emulator prior to 
running an x86 app, but it appears to automatically invoke when it detects the 
different architecture trying to load. So it started the emulator and runs KX3 
Util inside it.
It isn’t perfect though - for some reason it fails to connect to 
ftp.elecraft.com with a 127 error, even though the x86 machine can go to the 
internet. KX3 Util does connect to the KX3 and can do everything else though. 
Guess I’ll have to figure out how to correct that one problem.

I expect that a some time in the not-to-distant future they will release a 
64-bit version of Raspbian. It would be nice to have a native KX3 Util program 
compiled for the Arm. Raspberry Pis just get more popular for ham radio. It 
runs the FL suite, WSJT-X, and Chirp.

Unless you ran it under emulation (e.g. wine or something like that), I think 
you are misremembering. KX3 utility is currently only available as X86 32 bit 
application. It can't run natively on a Raspberry Pi.

I just downloaded and tried to run it on a Pi running the latest version of 
Raspian got the error I expected.

pi@raspberrypi:~/kx3util_1_16_6_25 $ ./kx3util
-bash: ./kx3util: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
pi@raspberrypi:~/kx3util_1_16_6_25 $

How did you get it to run?
