Install of vCenter 5.5 hangs on Server 2012 R2

When I was installing vCenter 5.5 on a Server 2012 R2 vm in my home lab I had a problem with it hanging on “Installing Directory Services”. After trying to uninstall and reinstall a few times I discovered that Server 2012R2 does not include the OCSetup.exe file in %WinDir%\System32\ folder. I went to an existing instalation of Server 2008R2 and copied the file to my Server 2012R2 installation and reinstalled vCenter with no problem.
