Please note, as happened for prior cumulative updates the application version will show a different number of: 6.3.6000.149 if you apply CU13 to an existing install of Ax2012 R3. This is due to all the individual models that are applied to your system through the CU13 install. The one model indicating all models for CU13 has been applied has version number 6.3.6000.149. Using a slipstream process as detailed in the Installation guide will result in the single full model applied for CU12 with build number 6.3.6000.151.
