Thanks for the inquiry. The following options are available for delivering an Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 Vision instance:

Option 1. Install the Vision instance delivered with Rapid Install 12.1.1. Once the install is complete, you can follow the instructions in the Release 12.1.3 Release Update Pack to upgrade the Vision instance. Additional information is available here:
