  • What procedure are you using to install .NET 3.5 on Win 8.1?

    This article describes the correct technique:

    If you have already used the procedures in the linked article,  I suggest you repair your OS by the "SFC /scannow" command.

  • If your computer is on a domain and the windows updates is managed by an internal windows update server, you can try removing your PC from the domain and doing the update at Windows features.

    This method worked for me.

    Kind Regards

  • Hello Nodeee,

    I don't know why pvdg's link cannot be opened so I paste it again:

    If you cannot turn on it please try dism command listed there.
