Dynamics AX 2012 CU3 Database Upgrade–InstallPath error

When installing Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 CU3 and at the stage up updating the database models using the the below options I have received the following error “The InstallPath installation path for the 32-bit files cannot be under the folders reserved for the 64-bit files. Enter a different path.”

For some reason the installer checks for a path for a 32-bit component even though we are only installing 64-bit components.

Solution

Install the AX Client on that machine and the CU3 installer will stop throwing the error
