    Can't install .NET Framework 3.5


    I can't install .NET Framework 3.5 no matter what I do. I tried downloading it and in the midway get the error 0x800f0906. I tried installing through DISM but that didn't work either. It always stops at 65.8 %.

    Can somebody tell me how to fix it? It's really driving me nuts.

    It is a Feature of Windows 8. Go to Control Panel--Programs and Features and on the left click on Turn Windows Features On and Off.

    I tried it but still get the same error 0x800f0906. I'm pretty sure my internet connection is not the problem since I could connect to Microsft's update URL.

    How do you access Windows update in Windows 8? But I doubt even that would work.

    dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:X:\sources\sxs
    (X=DVD drive letter OR USB) press Enter. When it finish, you are done.


    fyi: Win update is under CTRL PAN

    Move the cursor to the bottom left, right click on the Start, Control Panel, System and Security, Windows Update.

    I tried everything you people suggested and it still didn't work. Any other way I could install it or if I could get the offline version of its installer?
