can i upgrade our MP-8000B beyond 7.1.2b?

We have a pair of MP-8000B switches that we upgraded to firmware 7.1.2b1.  We would like to upgrade to the latest recommended version but I can't find a chart or anything to show what that is.  We tried to upgrade to v7.2.0d, v7.2.1 and v7.3.0 but all give the following error when running 'firmwaredownload' :Cannot download the requested firmware because the firmware doesn't support this platform".


Is 7.1.2b1 as far as my switches can or should go?  i didn't try using the -s switch.


part of our desire to upgrade is to get the webUI working on an OS newer than windows XP.
