Further, you can not use the .exe from the official distribution in 
place of the one in MikTeX, because they have been compiled with 
different systems and then require different .dll.
The best way is to do like Ben suggest: update using the update program 
of MikTeX.

It should be possible to compile a new version using Visual C 2008 (I 
think it is the system used for MikTeX); but I am not sure that you 
would get a real benefit!
