Installing the .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 8

13 posts in this topic

Require to run an old program that requires Dotnet 2.

Have tried the following:

1. Enable through prog/features, errors out, says it cannot connect to WU to download files! WU works fine otherwise though!

2. Tried enabling with dism gets to 66% & errors also!

3. Tried changing Gpedit enable the policy to use Windows Update instead of WSUS, still no good.

I have a fully up to date install & no Lang packs were installed.

Have followed MS examples on this page : here

Any advice is appreciated?

run the DISM command with the LimitAccess flag. If this doesn't fix it, copy the folder C:\Windows\logs\CBS to the desktop, zip it and upload it.

Thanks, just tried it again using:

dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFX3 /All /Source:C:\SxS /LimitAccess

Errors out approx 66.5%!

Checked the sxs dir & verified this on my original setup disk ok.

Please see CBS log attached.

Windows can't find the required data:


Failed to process single phase execution. [HRESULT = 0x800f081f - CBS_E_SOURCE_MISSING]

have you copied the data from the DVD to C:\SxS?

Hi

Have copied the entire SxS dir 274mb to the root of C. Checked off the install media & removed all read only attributes too.

Checked the script & paths also!

It still gives the missing source error?

Screen capture below confirms the log.

If I drop the "/LimitAccess" from the script dism complains it cannot download the files.

Run it directly from the DVD:


dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:d:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

(replace D: with your DVD drive)

Is the ISO ok? Where did you get the ISO from?

Can you please share the latest log files?

Original media is a legal OEM W8 Prof 64 bit disk.

I read all over the net how to install this offline but the only way to install with Dism is apparently online!

I have fully updated my source & have removed some features, though haven't removed net.

Log attached.

I can see it copies the files but next it fails. I have no real idea. Download the Enterprise Eval DVD and mount the ISO and point to this SxS folder. Does this work?

Thanks M for your time, I read all over the net some get it to work others like me don't. Will keep plugging away.

I think that it's impossible to install .NET Framework 3.5 in Windows 8 once you've installed language packs. Have you installed any of them in your system?

Hi

I have an english en-gb OEM disk, obviously with en-us lang files built in. I did however remove all traces of the en-gb files from the source & boot.wim.

Remember no Lang packs were installed whatsoever!
