Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64)
Goal: prep for and install Exchange 2012

Hi there,
According to the MS prerequisites (Technet Article), I need to install .Net 4.5 and Windows MGMT Framework 3.0 before installing Exchange 2012.  However, when I try to install the latter, I get "this update is not applicable to your computer."

I have added the Feature "Windows PowerShell ISE" from Server Manager.

Googling this issue, a common resolution seems to be .Net 4.0.  However, I can't install this simultaneously with .Net 4.5.  I'm inclined to uninstall .Net 4.5, except that MS insists that .Net 4.0 is NOT needed.  (see above article)  Any ideas?
Thanks!

As a note to others who may have this issue: the Windows update that I needed to install was NOT a critical update, it was an optional .NET 4.5 update.
