This is probably not any help.  Just my two cents:

Google search for phison_flash_id.rar gave me (among a lot of other 

Google translated the page much better than I can.  The .exe you extracted 
(or maybe the .exe extracted from some other RAR of the same name) 
apparently will extract-exe-then-run on most flavors of Windows, probably 
in a "dos box".

You would, evidently, have to run some flavor of Window$ on the hardware 
in question.

Barring that, can you give this list some more detail about the hardware 
and what you are trying to do?

I get only the digest of this list, so if you want to discourse with  me 
specifically, please CC the address below.
