At the moment, we struggle to produce a nicely packaged windows binary,
on time after every release (by "we" I mean "I" of course). Probably, I
should talk to Chris Zheng (http://zklhp.github.io/emacs-w64/), he seems
a bit quicker than me.

To me, the sane "update" proceedure is "install a new version of
emacs". If you want updating outside of that there are more holisitic
solutions like chocolaty.
