You should share your solution when you close the thread, since you solved it yourself.
However, I know the solution, having just gone through this myself. It's really quite simple. For Windows 2012 R2, there is no hotfix to download and apply (the hotfix in the KB is for Windows 2012, not 2012 R2). In Win 2012 R2 there is a minor registry change to make manually, and it is completely and fully described in the Microsoft KB article. Add the registry key mentioned, and the prerequisites check will pass. This is a new check in the latest versions of SWPM -- earlier versions didn't check for this registry key.
