Can't Create a Bios Recovery Flash Drive

Pavilion 17-x115dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to make a bios recovery flash drive for a model 17-x115dx laptop.  I downloaded the file, SP92953.EXE onto another computer, and followed the directions for creating the drive.  I get past the screen where I accept the liscensing agreement, and then it says extracting files, but nothing happens after that.  It never gets to any screen that asks about creating a USB recovery flash drive.  I tried 4 different computers, and it is the same on each.  If I could get the bios on the flash drive, i could fix the laptop.

go to the folder where it extracted and run the .exe in there. Should be C;\SwSetup\SP92953

Or if you see a folder of rescue files in there you could try copying that to your flash drive.

I understand that this is what I am supposed to do, and this is what i am doing.  The problem is that it doesnt work.  It gets to the same spot after I accept the licensing agreement, and then just goes away.  It is not extracting.  And i tried it on 4 different computers.
