Problems updating firmware on C7145-8000 Tape Library

I have an HP tape library C7145-8000 and have run the tape tools test utilities on it. It is saying the firmware needs to be updated from version 2330 to 2600. I am unable to download the firmware from within the Tape Tools Utility as it keeps hanging so am having to do it manually.
When I try and download the firmware from this link...

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?locBasepartNum=co-14649-2〈=English+%28US%29

I am only getting the .shar file rather than the .exe file needed for windows.

Any ideas how else to update this firmware or execute this download correctly?

Hi,
Your link shows that you are downloading the firmaware for HP-Unix that's why it's in .shar format which you can unshar only on Unix systems using unshar command.

Im afraid that doesn't give me the firmware version 2600 that the Tape Tools is indicating I need.

L&TT for Windows and his bundle,

If the server where you have connected the Autoloader ahve internet access, L&TT could download automaticaly the needed Firmware. If not, dust download the bundle and expand it in the firmware directoy
