Fortunately, the process is simple. Follow this link from your Windows VPS / Windows server to download the .NET Framework 4.5 update package directly from Microsoft:

The updater will install the .NET Framework update on your system, or warn you if there are any missing requirements.

If you are using Windows Server 2012 R2, the system should already have the latest .NET Framework installed.
