  • A program I am trying to load has requested .NET 2 be downloaded for use. I have gone to windows features and tried to turn on .NET 3.5 (inc 2) but get an error message - 0x800f0906 couldn't complete as not connected to internet. However this is not true - as this request for assistance is testament. I have a new machine running windows 8. What do I need to do to get this to download?

  • Hello samuelspaniel,

    Please check the troubelshooting part from the following page:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh506443(v=vs.110).aspx

    "You have the same error below:

    0x800f0906                       :  “The source files could not be downloaded.  Use the "source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=243077.  The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log. Windows couldn't complete the requested changes.”

    To fix this issue, please use the dism command and insert your system DVD:

    Command:

    DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess /Source:installationMediaDrive:\sources\sxs

    How to use the command:

    /Online targets the operating system you're running (instead of an offline Windows image).
      • /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 specifies that you want to enable the .NET Framework 3.5.

      • /All enables all parent features of the .NET Framework 3.5.

      • /LimitAccess prevents DISM from contacting Windows Update (this mean you do not need Internet access).

    • /Source specifies the location of the files needed to restore the feature (for example, the D:\sources\sxs directory)."

    Some customers are confused about the /source here. When you check your operating system DVD, you will find \sources\sxs folder in your ISO. That is the directory we need.

    Best regards,
