How to update OpenCL drivers?

I am trying to update my OpenCL Drivers but i cannot find out how to do it. The https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/opencl-drivers seems like the site to find them, but the SDK for windows does not contain the drivers, the CPU-ONLY drivers will not even start installing (complaining that i have a graphics driver installed) and the GPU driver (which i guess also contains the cpu driver??) can only be installed through the intel driver update utility, which does not give me the option to update anything other than a bluetooth driver.

Hope you can help me and maybe clear up my confusion about why this should be so hard

My System:
OS: Windows 10

For Windows, when you install or update the graphics driver (Windows update, downloadcenter.intel.com, etc.) the additional libraries needed to run Media SDK and OpenCL applications are included.
