The older Firmware can only be update on a W7 System - this is a restriction of W10/W11 not from us.
As the Firmware update was released at a time where mots peolple use a W7/8.1 we do not invest more time in change the Update Tool, to fix a W10/W11 limitation.
This is also simply not possible, because of the used USB Base stack in W10/W11. If this was simply to implement we already have done it....
