    Can't install Windows 8 framework 3.5...


    Hi there.
    I hope you're fine.
    I'm new here, so let me thank you for your help.


    OKAY.
    I've a problem with my Win 8. It's 2 month now that i'm trying to install the framework 3.5...
    I've tried with Windows 8, I've tried Ofline too with the boot device...
    But it still the same. I always get an error.


    I now, i've missed something again. So, please, help me.

    Did you try thru Control Panel > Programs and features > Turn windows features on or off ?

    OK. like this: You go to Control Panel > Programs and features > Turn windows features on or of, there should be ".NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.)" and you check the box next to it. It should install and activate it and after that, there may be an Windows update for it as newest one is 3,5.1 if it does not install it immediately.

    Hi CounkMike.
    First of all, let me apologize for the delay. I've got little issues this days.

    I've done what you said in the Cpanel but still the same. When i check the box, windows tries to download directly but the download fails. I've also run Windows Update but still don't active.
    Really don't know what to do again.

    You deserve many thanks again for your great help.


    God bless you .

    If still not working. If you wish, you can try:
    1. Delete everything in: C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download . Those are old Windows Updates files.
    2. Go to this link: Fix Windows Update Error messages and other Windows Update issues and click on Run Now
    3. Try to turn on Net Framework 3.5 from Program Features that was suggested above.
