AX2012R3 management reporter installation error on SQL2014

Today I encountered an error installing management reporter using AX2012 R3 installer.
The log file writes:
2014-07-16 12:11:12Z 7/16/2014 12:11:11 PM - Extracting supporting files for database deployment...
2014-07-16 12:11:12Z 7/16/2014 12:11:11 PM - Beginning database deployment...

2014-07-16 12:11:12Z 7/16/2014 12:11:12 PM - The database deployment failed. Additional information: Could not deploy package.
The SQL server is SQL 2014 (12.0.2000).

I found that the management reporter installer in the installation media I got is version 2.1.8001.
I looked online and see that CU9 (2.1.9001.11) is available. I downloaded it and it worked flawlessly.

    1. I don't think I found out using below method back then, but anyway:
      1) Go to the Msi\MRClient64 folder in the disc.
      2) Open the MRClient.cab
      3) Find and Extract ReportDesigner.exe to desktop
      4) Right click the .exe and check "Details" tab for product version
