Install Enterprise Portal on SharePoint 2013 on AX 2012 R2 CU7

If you install Enterprise Portal on a SharePoint 2013 environment always follow the installation instructions on technet: http://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/library/dn169057.aspx

Install SharePoint 2013 and do not start the configuration. After that install the update for Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013 (KB2768000) When the update is installed start the configuration.

In the real world it often occurs that SharePoint is already installed and maybe also updated. There you should check if you need to install the update KB2768000.
If it is installed you can directly jump to the AX installation and select EP. If not run the KB Setup.

When the prerequisite check fails with the error "update SharePoint 2013" close the AX installation and run the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard (Start -> All Programs -> Microsoft SharePoint 2013 Products -> SharePoint 2013 Products Configuration Wizard)
The Wizard will tell you that it processes an upgrade.

After that the prerequisite check should run through.
