Hello, I chacged a couple of things but I stiil get the same error:
[096C:05BC][2017-08-15T08:13:12]e313: Failed to acquire payload: NetFx461Redist to working path: C:\Users\ADMINI~1\AppData\Local\Temp\2\{CC7A3737-DF07-428C-BE6F-D204DD1AC121}\NetFx461Redist, error: 0x80072ee7.
[096C:0918][2017-08-15T08:13:12]e000: Error 0x80072ee7: Failed while caching, aborting execution.

The <PackageGroupRef Id="NetFx461Redist"/> is there and I changed the Payload Name to: "redist\NDP461-KB3102436-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe"
Maybe I'm not understanding what "distribute your installer with redist\NDP461-KB3102436-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe file" means, doesn't the Payload supposed to add the exe and make it available during install?

This is what I have now:

<Bundle Name="My_Bootstrapper"
    <BootstrapperApplicationRef Id="WixStandardBootstrapperApplication.RtfLicense"/>

    <PayloadGroup Id="NetFx461RedistPayload">
      <Payload Name="redist\NDP461-KB3102436-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe"

      <PackageGroupRef Id="NetFx461Redist"/>
      <MsiPackage SourceFile = '$(var.My_Installer.TargetPath)' Id='abc' Vital='yes' ></MsiPackage>

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
