Trouble finding the Microsoft OLEDB Provider for DB/2 install package?

Today I needed to install the Microsoft OLEDB Provider for DB/2. A quick search brought up this download page:

However, if you click on the Download button, you only get the PDF instructions, not the installer file.

The actual files to download are in the Microsoft SQL Server Feature Pack.

Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 Feature Pack

If you look at the very bottom of the Install Instructions, you will find two links - for the x86 package and the x64 package.

Microsoft® SQL Server® 2014 Feature Pack

In this one, the files are version 5 of the provider, in the Download link.

This was a pain to find, so I thought I'd blog so that someone could benefit from my pain.
