I am running Exchange 2010 with no service packs on a Server 2008 r2 box.  I have downloaded Exchange SP3 from Microsoft but when I go to install it I see a different screen than on blogs I have looked at regarding installation.  I see this screen to Install Exchange 2010.  If I click on  Install Microsoft Exchange, I get a message that Exchange is already installed and this wizard will allow me to add Exchange Server Roles to this computer.  That's not what I'm trying to do.  I have downloaded the file twice and verified it is the right file.

There is an Active Directory Schema update for this service pack.
You will need a reboot and there will be down time.
 You can upgrade to SP3 directly from RTM, SP1, or SP2.

You can try within elevated command prompt "setup.com /m:upgrade"
Also ensure that you are having schema and domain admins membership for account you are running

Also prior to running SP3 upgrade read below article carefully as upgradation exchange sp is not painless and might break during upgrade
