I know this is an old thread, but I hit the same issue you did, and joined the community just now to give an answer.

This is what you need to do, as this message appears on Windows 7 without service packs..

Go grab yourself Service pack 1

Then get the Offline installer for framework 4.7.2 (read down the page for mention of Windows 7)

As of this post I have installed with success 3.1.2, then upgraded to the latest 3.1.3

works for me too !
