    How to install net framework 3.5????


    I have just bought a brand new windows 8 tablet 8"

    I am trying to install NET FRAMEWORK 3.5 without any success. I have tried all the usual methods, googled till my hearts content and pulled my hair out for a number of hours now. This is why i never upgraded my W7 main computer to W8 or W10 it is just awful. Anyway i am stuck with this windows 8 tablet and i need some help please.

    There seems to be 2 solutions to it.

    1. Delete a couple of windows updates which cause this problem.
    = This is NOT possible on my tablet as there is no option to uninstall any of the pre-installed updates.

    2. Run a specific command and point it to a windows media CD.
    = This is NOT possible as you cant insert a windows disc into a tablet. The internal HDD size also wont allow a virtual mounted media either. Plus i don't have any of these available.

    So how on the living earth do i get net framework 3.5 installed on a windows 8 tablet?????

    Thanks

    As per above, i do not have a windows 8 operating system disc. Even if i did i cannot use it as its a tablet.

    I know there's probably no other ways to solve this problem, as i've searched the net high and low. But on the OFF chance.

    So frustrating to do something so simple, which i do so simply on previous OS.

    I've tried also:

    - Uninstalling 2 updates which possibly are preventing NFW installing via command promopt - DOESNT WORK
    - Installing NFW via microsoft site - DOESNT WORK
    - Download the offline installer of NFW which is over 200mb in size - DOESNT WORK
    - Uninstalling the potentially offending updates in windows - DOESNT WORK
    - Going to windows features to enable NFW 3.5, and checking the other 2 boxes - DOESNT WORK
    - Tried turning off firewall completely - DOESNT WORK
    - Tried setting UAC to never notify - DOESNT WORK
    - NO antivirus is installed

    I AM connected to the net and i AM an administrator.

    It seems the ONLY POSSIBLY SOLUTION is to insert a windows 8 disc, which as i mentioned i cannot do that.

    Why have they made it so difficult????

    Create your windows 8.1 media on a USB stick...

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...nload/windows8

    Then run this command from command prompt (admin)

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

    Replace X with the drive letter assigned to the USB stick

    Tablets do not have usb ports, so i cannot do that.

    Use this to install .NET Framework 3.5 under Win8:

    Download Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Offline Installer for Windows 8 and Later - AskVG

    this worked on my Win8.1 & Win10 PCs that don't have .NET 3.5 installed

    What make/model tablet do you have? I've owned several Windows tablets and all of them have had USB ports.

    Many tablets have a single, micro-USB connector which doubles as a charging port and a USB port. You may need an adapter cable to connect a USB thumb drive or even an external optical drive.
