Goal

Trying to upgrade BRM 7.3.1 to BRM 7.4 by applying <Patch 7594327>.
The sequence followed for the 7.3.1 install is as follows:-

1) Installed 7.3.1_ThirdParty_solaris_32_opt.bin in the same instance via pin user
2) Installed 7.3.1_Portal_Base_solaris_32_opt.bin in the same instance via pin user
3) Installed 7.3.1_ThirdParty_solaris_32_opt.bin in the same instance via pipeline user
4) Installed 7.3.1_Pipeline_solaris_64_opt.bin in the same instance via pipeline user


When trying to install <Patch 7594327>,  first run '7.4_7594327_ThirdParty_Upgrade_platform_32_opt.bin' by 'pin' user to upgrade the ThirdParty.
However, the installation always prompts to /brms/integrate/Thirdparty where pipeline instance Thirdparty is installed and there is no way of changing this.
For Portal Base, the ThirdParty package is installed at the location /brms/portal/ThirdParty and so the upgrade ThirdParty should be too.

Why is this?
