I've installed .NET 4.7.2 on an EC2 running Windows Server 2016 but when I go to Server Manager > Add Roles and Features, I can't see that version anywhere in the Roles or Features lists for Web Server, Application Development, etc.

How do you get the installation to show up inside the Roles/Features view?

I've tried running the following powershell command, but it doesn't change anything:

> Install-WindowsFeature Web-Asp-Net45

Success Restart Needed Exit Code      Feature Result
------- -------------- ---------      --------------
True    No             NoChangeNeeded {}

How to: Determine which .NET Framework versions are installed


Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full  
Value: Release  

For .NET Framework 4.7.2, Release should be 461814.
