Possible to download the .bin file directly for a firmware update?

I didn't bring my laptop home, only my tablet, which won't run the .exe on Windows RT and my wife's work computer wants administrator permission to open it. My understanding is the .exe is basically a self-extracting package doing nothing more than extracting the readme.txt and the .bin file to go onto the SD card. Any ides or does someone have the file I can get directly?

Haven't tried. Didn't spend any time looking for a zip file on Ricoh's site either.

Looks good on the wife's computer and I have an app for the table that works for zip files. Thanks!
