C:\Program Files [(x86)]\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.0
C:\Program Files [(x86)]\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.5

It's not clear if these are present when only the SDK installed. Direct experience says they are not, but there are mentions of a checkbox called ".NET Development > Intellisense and Reference Assemblies" when installing the SDK. See:
