  • If your Windows version is 7 or later, .NET 3.5.1 is embedded in the OS and cannot be repaired using normal techniques.

    The technique for embedded .NET Framework repair is here (I'm assuming you have .NET 3.5.1 installed):

    Please tell us your Windows version.

  • Hi William,

    I feel its a system requirements issue. We know that your machine has .NET Framework 4.5 installed fine. After checking the system requirements of .NET Framework 4.5, I think your OS may among the list below.

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30653

    Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2, Windows Vista Service Pack 2

    However,

    • system requirements of .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2:

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=1639

    Windows Server 2003, Windows XP

    • system requirements of .NET Framework 3.5 Service pack 1:

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=25150Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows XP

    In other words, if your OS satisfy the requirements of .NET Framework 4.5, it won't be fit to .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2.

    We still need to check Whether your OS supports those .NET Framework versions or not.

    From your description, I see that you have used the netfx_setupverifier.exe tool. Did you use that tool to check if 2.0SP2, 3.0SP2  and 3.5SP1 installed? If they were installed, did you find any installation problems? Anyway, I think you need to make sure that your OS reaches their system requirements first.

    If they really can be installed in your OS, we can consider that they can either be embedded in OS or installed manually. Since you can't repair them using .NET Framework Repair Tool, you can have the system file checker tool for a change because maybe they are embedded in OS.

    • Opening a command prompt with administrative privileges 
    • Run this command in the cmd prompt: sfc /scannow

    As to this, you can read the blog that pvdg42 provides.
