  • Thanks for the post! Going through the steps, I'm getting hung up on the part where I run Dism. After running...

    'Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess /Source:d:\sources\sxs'

    It starts to enable the feature, gets to 100%, then I get an error saying the source files could not be found. Any idea what's going on?

  • yup I have to update the post. Apparently the net3 need to be installed on the container host too. Seems that when you run dism or Install-WindowsFeature from within the container it looks at the container host some how.

    Another point I saw is that sometimes after creating the registry keys they become corrupted but a workaround is to change the owner to administrator before creating them.
