Problem with updating Z50 software

My new Z50 arrived today, and it getting it ready to use, I downloaded the update file from Nikon, F-Z50-202W.exe, to my Windows 10 computer but the file won't open or run.  I've done several firmware updates before, so I'm familiar with how to do it, and followed Nikon's steps to no avail.

Has anyone else had this problem?

When I did mine from my Mac, I put it in the wrong folder on the formatted sd card the first time, then I tried one of the other folders then it worked...sorry I forget which one is the correct one.

.Exe file usually operates in a blink of an eye.  Typically it creates .bin file (similar name as the .exe file) often as not in another folder, usually in the same folder/place you have the .exe file.  So maybe do search for the ,bin file.  Just so I don't miss a step, I will make a printout of the Nikon steps to follow, and check off each step as completed.  Good Luck! & Stay Safe!

TomS53,

Many thanks!  The .exe file ran so fast I wasn't aware it had run, and the .bin wasn't obvious.  I searched for *.bin and there it was.  Camera just finished update, and all is well!

Stay safe and well, my friend.
