Enable .NET Framework 2.0 and 3.5 in Windows 8

The first problem you may face when you install windows 8 is that of DotNet Framework 2.0 and 3.5 installation. Whenever you will try to install some software, you may get an error requiring installation of dotnet 3.5 from windows update which is very difficult as its time consuming. Even if you download dotnetfx35, you wont be able to install.

I am going to tell you a very easy way to enable dotnet 3.5 in freshly installed windows 8. Here you don't require any windows update and no need to download manually.

  • Insert Windows 8 installation disk or Mount windows 8 ISO or Insert windows 8 Bootable Pen-drive.
  • Go to extreme bottom left corner and Right Click to get a small menu.
  • Click on Command Prompt (Admin).
  • Type the following Command:

                    dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /all /source:                                     <w8_setup_drive>:\sources\sxs

Replace <w8 setup_drive> with the drive letter of windows 8 dvd/pendrive and wait for command to execute successfully. It may take upto 5 minutes.
