Unzip the file first, there is a PDF in there with very specific instructions.

Be sure to follow them exactly, step by step.

Thanks fxdscon...how do I tell what version I currently have.

A direct quote from those instructions I suggested that you read:

"As noted above, there are two different versions of CPU firmware for the
PSR-500/PSR-600 scanning receivers. To determine which version you should
use, turn your radio off, then turn it back on while holding down the PGM key.
Refer to the “uP Boot Ver:” line at the top of the display to determine the Boot
Version used in your radio.

Use​
CPUUpdater_PSR-500-600-
BootF10F11_U2.1
.exe with Boot Versions prior to 1.4. Use
CPUUpdater_PSR-500-600-BootF14_U2.1​
.exe with Boot Versions 1.4 and

greater."
