[Solved] .Net 3.5 framework issue in Windows 10

I have faced an issue while setting up a tool that requires .Net 3.5 Framework in my Windows 10 machine. I managed it and thus thought to write a blog on, as it might help other also who are facing such type of issues.

I have posted similar type of blog but that doesn’t work for me in Windows 10 even it works like a charm for Windows 7. You can explore it too from here.  However, I suggest you to try this step first and if this doesn’t help, then please try the following solution.

In Windows 10, you have to install .Net 3.5 framework by exploring via “Turn Windows Features on or off”. However, once you start setting up, it pops up with following error message:

Finaldotnet35error

Solution: 

It is pretty straight forward and all you need is a Bootable USB drive of Windows 10. If you are not sure about booting Windows 10 from USB, please check my old blog too.

  • Run command prompt as administrator and execute the following line in it:
Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source:F:\sources\sxs 

where F is the drive letter of your bootable CD/ USB.

Sucessfully

Once you manage to run the above line successfully, try to install .Net again from Windows feature. It should work like a charm.

Feel free to comment on it.

Cheers,

Udhyan.
