Are you using Windows 10?  It has a fit when you try to download files
into its protected directories like  C:\Program Files (x86)\Elecraft\KX3
Utility.  I don't have the KX3 Utility but the K3 utility has an option
to place downloaded files somewhere in the User directory.  Windows
should accommodate this by setting up a directory in
C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData.  Check that out and see if it helps.

This is called Controlled Folder Access. I usually switch this off for using apps like the utility files, and turn it back on when I am done.

Probably because the folder you’re choosing for firmware files cannot be written to without admin privileges. Most folders under Program Files require admin permission for write. It’s intended for programs, not user data.

Click the default button on the KX3 Utility Firmware tab, and the utility should then be able to write into that folder.

Or choose a different folder under your user folder...
