K100D Super firmware updating

Sorry for posting in the wrong forum. I have downloaded the file kc_e102w.exe from the pentax Firmware page on Pentax Imaging - Software & Firmaware Updates .
I then run the exe file so I get the file FWBC156B.BIN .
On the camera I then format a 500gb SD memory card and plug in the K100D to the PC.
I then transfer the FWBC156B.BIN file onto the root directory of the SD memory card that is installed in the camera.
Next I switch off the camera and unplug the usb lead. Next I press the Menu button on the camera and power it up while holding down the menu button . The screen says VER: 1.00 and then goes to the lens length screen. Nothing else happens.

The 1.02 update is for K100D (non-Super).

K100D Super does not have any update available.
