Virtio driver Qemu agent and Balloon update in Windows

I've updated virtios drivers on a windows server 2016.
Aaron suggested to do it from spice directly, using Windows Guest tools.
I've done it, but looking on gitlab what it was doing, it seems to me that the virtio drivers are updated with version 0.1.160-1: It is a 2018 od version.
On Fedora website;O=D , last version is 0.1.189-1

Is there a way to update all drivers and services automatically with up to date virtio drivers ans services ?
If not, I can update drivers manually, but how can I update Qemu agent, and Balloon services ? Following initial install procedure, windows answers that it is not possible because these services already exists, and I haven't been able to find the way to delete them.

Thanks for helping
