    .NET Framework 3.5 will not install.


    I'm trying to install the .NET Framework 3.5
    When I enable it in Programs and Features, it starts installing, and stops when it gets here.
    It's been like this for a few hours.

    You might have to try downloading an offline install version of net framework 3.5:
    Download Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Offline Installer for Windows 8 and Later - AskVG
    I just saw my own URL -- it's not an official MS web site; perhaps forget that site.
    And, when BC techs enter in, follow their advice to the letter, you can't go wrong.

    do you have windows setup media? insert your windows 8/8.1 setup media and run this from command prompt(admin)
    this command assumes your setup media is drive K - change drive letter to suit your system..

    Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /Source:K:\sources\sxs /all /LimitAccess

    Hey now, that's an issue on my other computer that was recently given to me that I won't be able to reinstall for a while. This thread is on the computer I do have rights for.

    Why is it you do not have a Admin account?
    How many user accounts you have on PC?
    Did this PC come with windows 8 / 8.1?
