Do not try to update Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack 1 Demo Virtual Machine (VM) with CU3

It won't work.

The documentation for CU3 states the following (which I regret not reading before going ahead with the update):
  • Updating Dynamics AX 2012 Cumulative Update 3 on Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack 1 Virtual Machine (VM) 6.0.1100.0 does not update the system with Dynamics AX 2012 Cumulative Update 3 Feature Pack Patch (FPP) model
  • Updating DynamicsAX 2012 Cumulative Update 3 on DynamicsAX 2012 Feature Pack 1 Virtual Machine (VM) 6.0.1100.0 may result in the termination of Application Object Server (AOS) during compilation, done as a part of upgrade

There's no information whether this will be fixed or not, or if there'll soon become a new image available.

Sigh.

Thanks for notifying this. My workaround, was to first replace the 6.0.1100 with 6.0.1108 CU2, by manually installing the models. Then afterwards I installed the CU3.

Thank you for sharing this workaround.

My workaround was:
- install CU3
- install the two fpp models into the modelstore by axutil. You can find them in the folder CU3\models\extensions:
1. dynamicsax2012-kb2709934-extensions.axmodel
2. dynamicsax2012-kb2709934-extensionsupgrade.axmodel
- One small adjustment: Add the field AccountingLegalEntity to the table ProjectRevenueLine. Use EDT LegalEntityRecID.
- Complete the Software Update Checklist.
