Direct download for Chessbase 15 update?

Does anyone know of a direct download for a Chessbase 15 update? Or is there a way to update through the software but save the executable for archival purposes?

Re: Why does Lets Check" in Fritz sometimes just show "New Engine"?

Let's Check recognizes only SF, Houdini, Komodo, Shredder, Fire, Gull, Rybka and the various Fritzes. Everything else, including SF derivatives like asmFish, Brainfish and SuGaR, shows up as "New Engine". The name recognition scheme seems to be based on straightforward string comparison. So you can...

It seems that Lc0 shows up as "New Engine" in Fritz, but I don't know why.

Is this a program quirk or is it something that needs to be populated in the engine itself to be read by the program?

Started testing some engines on midgames250.epd at shorter time, single thread.
Results so far, https://fsmosca.github.io/chess-tests/
Could you include SF_dev too? On my tests, it seems to have improved positionally sensibly (but on 1000 positions) over SF 10.
Nice results by Xiphos
