    .NET Framework 3.5 Problem on Windows 8.1


    Hi all, I don't know if this is the right section for my question, if it isn't I apologize in advance.
    The problem is that I can't install the .NET Framework 3.5 on my Windows 8.1 because when i try to install it, appears:

    Click image for larger version

    "Can't install the following feature:
    .NET Framework 3.5

    Can't find the specified file
    Error: 0x80070002"
    The same if i download the dotNetFx35setup.exe setup from Microsoft Website.
    I tried also in other 2 ways suggested here (Installazione di .NET Framework 3.5 in Windows 8) :
    - In Control Panel -> Programs -> Enable or disable Windows Features -> .NET Framework 3.5 but i receive the same error
    - I insert Windows 8 DVD in the D:\ Unit and i type in the prompt command this code:

    Code:
     DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess /Source:d:\sources\sxs 

    But i receive this error:

    Click image for larger version


    "Features Activation: 99.8%
    Error: 2
    Can't find the specified file"

    Can you help me? Thanks in advance!

    I also had this problem and i don't really know how i fixed it. I tried installing it but it kept giving me the same error. I needed Frameworks for the program Paint.Net. So when i run the installation wizard of Paint.Net it showed me the instalation of .net frameworks. But there was an option to ignore the instalation of framework and just try the instalation of paint.net. So i ignored it and paint but net installed without a program. After the instalation of paint.net, the instalation of .net frameworks worked fine.
    Its really strainge but it worked on two computers for me so thats one thing you can try.

    The second thing you can do is just be patiŽnt. Keep trying it. It might also work after a windows update.

    Still trying to get past this. I need it to install Catalyst control center for amd drivers. Even though there is the ignore option it doesn't work.
    I am thinking of going back to win8.

    No, I dont think that will solve your problem because i had the problem after resetting windows 8. So the problem also locates at windows 8
