I just installed it on my 2008 R2 x64 bit server no problem.

Were did you get this update from?

Are you sure you have the correct update for your system?

Apologies I miss read your question as I saw 4.5.1

Do you have service pack 1 installed on your server?

Sp1 is also a requirement for 4.5

Where did you get it from?

It came as a Microsoft update two days ago.
I use WSUS and it pulled the update down and was applied to my 2008 server windows 7 computer and my vista computer all of which installed and worked.

Suspect your server doesn't meet the prerequisites.
You must install Windows 2008 R2 SP1 before you can install .Net Framework 4.5.
Make sure you have downloaded and installed SP1 from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5842 or apply from your WSUS.
Probably better to download and install it manually.

Downloading and installing it manually so you can interactively deal with the error messages as they pop up.

There's a major issue with the last patch Tuesday and .net installs failing(among the 3 or 4 other bad patches they pushed out).

I would wait and see what their fix is.
