iLo Firmware Vcenter

I have two ProLiant DL360 Gen10 servers. Both are currently on iLo5 firmware 1.37. I am attempting to update, it appears there is an update to 1.40. I have gone to HPE Support to download the update, but I am very confused on how to install this update. I tried to download the package that shows up under those search results (S independent: RECOMMENDED * Online ROM Flash Firmware Package - HPE Integrated Lights-Out 5 (ilo5_140.fwpkg))

In order to install this the instructions say:
To flash this firmware package, use the following iLOrest command.  See http://www.hpe.com/servers/resttool to download the latest version of the iLOrest tool.

If I try to download this though, there is only a Linux Version and Windows Version, but no Vcenter verion. I haven't worked on HP Servres before, but I feel like I'm missing something. Does anyone have any experience they can share with how to update the iLo Firmware in this setup? I have read and watched youtube videos when using Windows servers, but can't find much for Vcenter.

Thanks You.

Might be easier to upgrade the iLO from the iLO's web interface.  You can use the .bin file from the Windows package -- just logon to the iLO web interface, click on "Firmware & OS Software" on the left, then "Update Firmware" on the right, then upload the .bin file.

Thanks for the suggestion. I was wondering if that would work. I will give it a shot.
