  • .NET Framework 3.5 is available as a Windows Feature in Windows 8.

    Control Panel->Programs and Features->Turn Windows features on and off...

    In the Windows Features dialog, locate .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0).

    Expand the node and make sure all subfeatures are activated.

    If AutoCAD 2011 is unable to recognize .NET 3.5, consult AutoCAD technical support for help with Windows 8 compatibility.
