I get this error when I open powerpivot documents in sharepoint.

"We cannot locate a server to load the workvbook Data Model."

after I've looked into the logs I came up with this:

Check Server Version (SQLSERVER2012\POWERPIVOT): Fail (Expected:

=11.0.2800.0, Actual: 11.0.2100.60).
--> Check Deployment Mode (SQLSERVER2012\POWERPIVOT): Pass. Monitorable Check Server Configuration (SQLSERVER2012\POWERPIVOT): Fail (Uninitialized, ConfigurationError, WrongVersion). SSPM: Initialization failed on server SQLSERVER2012\POWERPIVOT: Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Streaming.ServerConfigurationException: Server SQLSERVER2012\POWERPIVOT failed configuration checks (Status = Uninitialized, ConfigurationError, WrongVersion). at Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Streaming.OnPremise.Server.AssertServerConfiguration(Server amoServer, CancellationToken ctx) at Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Streaming.OnPremise.Server.Initialize(Guid serviceId, CancellationToken ctx) at Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Streaming.OnPremise.Tasks.InitializationTask.Run(CancellationToken ctx)

how can I update my analysis server version that doesn't affect anything else?

should I install a CU on my SQL or upgrade it?

I needed to install SQLServer2012SP1-KB2674319-x64-ENU (only the PowerPivot part) in order to increase the version of Analysis Services to 11.0.3000.0
