    Have to turned this feature on?

    If not, please try steps as below:

    1. Go to Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features>Turn Windows features on or off to enable it:

    2. The Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 is a highly compatible, in-place update to the Microsoft .NET Framework 4, please also enable the .Net Framework 4.6 Advance Services.

    3. Use the command sfc /scannow in case that there is any system corrupted files of pre-installed .Net Framework.
