How to "overwrite" a citra build?

I want to use a version of citra i found that allows cheats, but it only has a few .exe files, and is not a full build. how could i overwrite a build i downloaded with this build, so i can use the cheats?

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.

The latest version of canary has the cheat functionality. unofficial builds aren’t supported here. as a side note, be careful when downloading from unofficial sources.
