installing 3.5 framework RRS feed

  • Question

  • whenever I  try to download the 3.5 framework through the control panel, it comes back saying that I am not connected to the internet. The problem is, I do have internet connection and know that for a fact. Any help on why this may be happening?

    Thanks a lot,

  • Please tell us your Windows version. Specific suggestions will vary depending on the Windows version involved.

    If you have Windows 8.1, this article describes how to install .NET 3.5 offline using the DISM tool:

  • Hi Bryan,

    In addition to pvdg42's reply, you need to tell us about the version of your OS.

    What's more, no matter your os is win8 or win8.1, you both can refer to that article:

    Installing the .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 8 or 8.1

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

    If you cannot connect to the Internet, you can enable the .NET Framework 3.5 by using the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) command-line tool and specifying the installation media (ISO image or DVD) you installed Windows 8 from.

    1. In Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012, open a Command Prompt window with administrative credentials (that is, choose Run as administrator).

    2. To install the .NET Framework 3.5 from installation media located in the D:\sources\sxs directory, use the following command:

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