    Another person having trouble with .Net Framework 3.5

    Hi all, I hope you can help.

    I've been trying to install Autodesk 3DS Max 2013 but it won't full install as it says I require .Net Framework 3.5. It triggers a download but this always fails with error code 0x800F0906 (I know this error code is linked with interrupted internet connections but my one is solid).

    *I've put in my system spec at the bottom of this post*

    I've been trawling the internet looking for answers and have finally thought that now is the time to ask.

    This is what i've already tried and failed with;

    1) Tried triggering the download & activation through - control panel > Program features > Turn Windows features on or off >.NET Framework 3.5 (includes .Net 2.0 and 3.0)

    Same error code kept popping up.

    2) Tried deleting all frameworks and re installing them. For this I used steps 1-4 on Elizabeth Dawkin's sky drive.
    This comprises 1. Cleanup 2. 3.5 3. Dotnetfx 4. 1.1 SP1

    Here's the link

    Didn't fix it...

    3) My latest attempt has been through admin command prompt

    This never ran properly, I've popped in a screen shot of the error and the text I've inserted below.

    Not sure what the above error code means...

    If anyone could help or link to a site / forum where i might find an answer I would really appreciate it.

    Thank you!

    The answer is that MS did not put all the components needed for .NET 3.5 in with Win8. You have to used the Win8 installation DVD to retrieve the missing components. IF you install from the DVD, it will work -- I know, because I did it.

    I had the same issue trying to load Quicken on my Surface Pro. The Quicken link wouldn't complete the download and install but after the two attempts thru the Control Panel route I got it installed. I like you had no reason for it not to complete the first time.
