.NET 4.5 Prerequisite in InstallShield 2012 Spring Limited Edition for Visual Studio

OK, getting seriously PO'd now. This is a repost. My first post was quietly dropped by the forum.

I can't download the .NET 4.5 prerequisites.

I've got the spring edition. Installing this did not uninstall the old version, so I assume they are both needed.

After installing the spring edition, the 4.5 prerequisites appear in the list.

Download fails with checksum error.

The attachment on the hotfix page ( is broken.

The Service Pack 1 patch on fails to install, with the following error message:
"The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the Windows Installer service because the program to be upgraded may be missing, or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program. Verify that the program to be upgraded exists on your computer and that you have the correct upgrade patch."

What do I do?

As mentioned in the link
Hot fix is only applicable for the following products:-

Due to this you are not able to apply the hot fix for InstallShield Limited Edition 2012 Spring. Kindly let me know if there are any further problems.
