    How to download and install .Net 3.5(include 2.0 & 3.0)


    When i going to download .Net Framework 3.5 (include .net 2.0 and 3.0) using the windows features, I got the error 0x800F0906in many times...
    then i try to install using with DISM using the below command,

    dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3/Source:J:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

    where the my ISO image mount driver is J and I've got the below error

    C:\Windows\system32>dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source
    :J:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 6.2.9200.16384

    Image Version: 6.2.9200.16384

    Enabling feature(s)
    [===========================65.8%====== ]

    Error: 0x800f081f

    The source files could not be found.
    Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required t
    o restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see
    Configure a Windows Repair Source.

    The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.logBecause of this i am stuck with all my work and really fed up with this
    both CBS and DISM log files are here

    Installing the .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 8

    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

    Use /All to enable all parent features of the .NET Framework 3.5.


    Use /LimitAccess to prevent DISM from contacting Windows Update.


    Use /Source to specify the location of the files needed to restore the feature.

    You might want to try turning it on (all of it) in Programs and Features? Worked for me after some files were downloaded and changes made automatically.

    If you use the Programs and Features to install it, it will use WU or a configured WSUS server to download the bits if you don't have them. If you're using powershell or dism, or if you're offline, you must have either mounted an ISO or DVD that contains the files you need (sounds like your ISO doesn't for some reason), or you can mount the install.wim file from your DVD and use that folder as your source parameter.

    your logic and commands all look right, using the sxs for source ...
    Try it without the limit access option.
    If it still fails I suspect your source media to be corrupt, eg DVD scratched or bum ISO image etc ...
