Visual Studio 2012 Warning regarding .net framework 3.5, 4

Hi,

I have a project that is coded with a 3rd party reference (example.dll) namespace and I can't compile the code.  I receive:

The primary reference "3rdparty.client, version=0.0.0.0, ..." could not be resolved because it was built against the .netframework 4.0 framework.  This is a higher version than the currently targeted framework .netframework 3.5.

The only option available under Project -> project1 properties -> application tab, is .net framework 3.5.

I've went to the website it directed me to, but I can't install the pack kb2600211 because it's blocked by my system.

I'm not sure where to go from here.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Yes, it says I already have 4.5 installed, so it wouldn't let me continue.

The previous post was for the user.

The System variables are both pointed to c:\windows\temp.

Found out SharePoint 2010 doesn't support .NET 4.0.

So, how can I create a visual web part with a reference to a namespace developed with 4.0?
