I finally got things squared away with the .py scripts opening in notepad.
I also discovered that I needed to build a batch file to run the .py scripts so I built one to run the kap2vrt.2.py script and called it kap2vrt, but when I ran the script it gave me this error:
C:\charts\Rastor\11405>kap2vrt --cut 11405_1.kap
Traceback (most recent call last):

File "C:\OSGeo4W\apps\gdal-16\bin\kap2vrt.2.py", line 22, in flatten
AttributeError: type object 'itertools.chain' has no attribute 'from_iterable'
Just for the heck of it I tried the bsb2gdal.py, built a batch file and got it to work, not sure why kap2vrt would not work.......
