You need to add to your chain the PackageGroupRef, and distribute your installer with redist\NDP461-KB3102436-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe file

    <PackageGroupRef Id="NetFx461Redist"/>

Another way is to copy PackageGroup NetFx461Redist from WiX source, set SourceFile to NDP461-KB3102436-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe and Compressed to "yes". 
This way you'll get the .NET installer embedded in your installer
