  • Hi KranmarsMysteryDelicious,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    .NET Framework 3.5 is included in Win 7 and Win 10.

    So you may sfc/scannow to check your OS. Repair the registry is now required to fix this issue.See here about that command:
    Another reference link:

    In addition, if the problem still persists after using the sfc/scannow command, you could try to use dism command enable .NET Framework 3.5 (include .NET 2.0 and 3.0) feature in offline mode, please follow the steps below:

    Step 1 :
    Insert Windows 8 DVD or mount ISO image. The source of this feature can be found in folder E:\sources\sxs. (In this case E: the user’s drive letter on which the user has loaded Windows 8 Media.)

    Step 2 :
    Open CMD.EXE with Administrative Privileges.

    Step 3 :
    Run the following command Dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /All /Source:E:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess, and hit Enter.

    After completing the installation of .NET Framework 3.5 you can see that the feature is enabled.

    Although it is win8 solution, it also works for win10.
