I have just installed Visual Studio 2012 Premium and am in the process of converting our codebase to .NET 4.5, but the MSBuild 4.5 seems to be missing.
The page http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb397428 indicates that there should be a folder for the MSBuild 4.5 toolset at "Windows installation path\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.5.00000\", but I do not have this folder on my machine. Also it says there should be a registry hive at "\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSBuild\ToolsVersions\4.5\" but again, I don't have this on my machine.
Is there something else I need to install?

That page is wrong. .net 4.5 is an inplace upgrade of 4.0 so you will only have Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319
I'll try get the page updated.
