Most DWA adapters don't use FW updates. All use and operations are updated thru there installed drivers...

Do you mean driver version? There is not a way to update firmware on this adapter, only drivers.

The version printed on the box or device is the shipping version.

To see what version you are running in Windows 10, in the search box type "device manager".  Go to Network Adapters > right-click the D-Link adapter and select Properties. Click the Driver tab.

I have no idea.  Just curious by why do you need the firmware version? Drivers run the device. The firmware is not updateable unless you are using 3rd party source code.
