At a guess, the Windows version of the update utility doesn't support Windows 7. (The utility is from 2003.)

You may need the DOS version. However, that requires you to boot the system from a floppy. (I imagine that you can also prepare a bootable CD or USB flash drive, but it's not something I've done lately.)
