You need to install .NET Framework 4.5 and update it. There is no "just" 4.0 for Windows 8 and above and associated servers and above.

From what I have read, V4.5 includes features used by V4. So just install V3.5 and V4.5 in Windows Features (in Programs and Features) and update them. That should work.
