Error with fresh install on Windows Server 2012

When I try to access my site the first time I get this error:

Access to the path 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot\blog\App_Data\datastore\extensions\MetaExtension.xml'

It doesn't appear to be a permissions error, rather the extensions folder doesn't exist under datastore. I looked at the download again, and even tried the source download. Neither has an extensions folder under datastore.

I downloaded today. Is there something else I'm missing?

It should create this folder if doesn't exist. In your case, it probably doesn't have write permission on app_data. Check identity for application pool for your blog and add write permissions.
