PowerTap Firmware Update on a MAC

Can I update the firmware on my PT via a MAC? My version is 5.33 and the current is 5.67, I'm hoping it might be part of my battery drain problem, but it looks like firmware updates are only possible via Windows? Any ideas?

Thanks

Boot up BootCamp or Parallels (or virtual pc). Or go over next door and use your neighbor's pc

If you call up Saris, they can help you. You can send it in to them and they will update it for you, or , as has been suggested, you can do it on a friends PC, which is what I did.
Since I upgraded the new poweragent software on my Mac, last week, I am no longer able to download from my CPU.

I used the kids PC and upgraded the firmware, not sure if it will solve the battery drain problem of not, I may still call Saris this week.

I was able to download with the new 7.2 as before, so you might want to reinstall. I still need to call Saris about the battery drain, but both the firmware and Poweragent upgrades are working good.

I reinstalled 7.1.1 again and everything worked fine, then I reinstalled 7.2, as long as I have both of them it works, but when I uninstalled 7.1.1 it again fails to work-I'll just keep 'em both on.
