OM10 MII: Workspace on Win7?

Hello everybody,
today I got the M10 MII and I would like to update the firmware. But I don't have a PC with win10 but a notebook with Win7.
Is there any way to update it anyway? Workspace requires win10.

The separate Olympus Camera Updater (link) requires only Win XP or higher.

Alternatively, there's a website that a German user made, where you can download firmware binaries that you simply copy to your memory card and then the camera updates itself from that. It's not an official solution from Oly, so use at your own risk (I don't think anyone here has ever reported any problems related to it though). See https://lightsnowdev.com/Olympus/OMD/OMD-E-M10II.html if interested.

Yes.  I'm still on Win7 and it works just fine.  Be sure to read all the instructions first and follow the steps carefully.  Maybe print them for reference before you begin.
