  • Hi Leonid R,

    Thank you for your post.

    For .NET Framework 3.5 installation, there're two installers as the following:
    - Bootstrapper is a very lightweight setup package, which determines what needs to be installed and attempts to download these required components from the web during installation.
    - Full package is a stand-alone installer package that contains all required components to deploy different platforms.

    For your concern, you can download either of these two installers. According to the environment of your machine, both of them will install the required components.

    Hope this helps! If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,
    Yichun Chen

  • Just use the add/remove features in the server manager.

    Correct. It was already there. No need to download.

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to find, then download .Net 3.5 X64 "Full Installer or Stand Alone Installer."   The machines I need to install on are NOT on the internet.

    Any idea where to find it?

  • Hello,

    If .Net 4 is installed will .Net 3.5 install as well? Why I ask is I downloaded the dotnetfx35.exe but when run it appears to extract but does nothing else.

    We have some software that requires .Net 3.5 and is not working with just .Net 4. installed.

  • I forgot to ask you this important question: What is your Windows version?

  • Windows 7_64bit.

  • Did you find an answer to this problem?  This seems to be holding up my upgrade to SCOM 2012 SP1.

  • I have a double edged problem.

    Trying to get the Nexus Mod Manager tunning on Win 7 64 bit.  The exception is thrown:

    Bad formatexception: "Could not load file or assembly 'System.Xml.Linq, Version="

    System.Xml.Linq is in Windows\Assembly
    Net 3.5.0 not in "Programs & Features"- some say it is pre-bundled with Win 7.

    Have Net 4.0 ^ 4.5 and VS10.

    Net 3.5.1 in "Turn Windows Features On/Off" -close but no cigar.

    Running dotNetFx35setup.exe from Microsoft does nothing- not even an exception.

    Downloaded the above link for Win64 didn't do anything either. Went into the archive and ran clwireg_x64.exe which succeeded.

    Running netfx35_x64.exe in the archive gets "Please run the setup" message.

    Attempted to load and debug the source snapshot of the above into VS10 with System.NotImplementedExceptions in the properties of  settings.cs. The first automatic property is 'TempPathFolder". Heck it's just a property we haven't called anything yet! We get the same result whether the target Net framework is 3.5 or 4.0.

    No dice there either. How can one get VS to point to the "NexusClient.exe.config" file, which presumably contains the relevant data.

    A natural, B flat, C sharp, D compile
