    How to Install .NET Framework 3.5 in Windows 10


    The .NET Framework is a managed execution environment for Windows that provides a variety of services to its running apps. It consists of two major components: the common language runtime (CLR), which is the execution engine that handles running apps, and the .NET Framework Class Library, which provides a library of tested, reusable code that developers can call from their own apps.

    The Windows 10 May 2019 Update comes with .NET Framework 4.8 preinstalled.

    However, some older apps may require .NET framework 3.5 to be installed to run.

    Install .NET 3.5 Framework on Windows 10

    Is it even possible, the help for this is of no use.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb...lation-error-0x800f0906-0x800f081f-0x800f0907

    This is the bit thats applicable to me.

    To fix the error codes for Windows 10, follow these steps:

    1. Download the Windows Media Creation tool, and create an ISO image locally, or create an image for the version of Windows that you have installed.
    2. Configure the Group Policy as in Method 2, but also follow these steps:
      1. Mount the ISO image that's created in step 1.
      2. Point the "Alternate source file path" to the ISO sources\sxs folder from the ISO.
      3. Run the gpupdate /force command.
      4. Add the .Net framework feature.

    Method 2 isn't mentioned anywhere.

    Further more if i download the framework installer and run the dotnetfx35setup.exe file i get a window that says it requires the framework its trying to install, so its a loop that requires the framework to install the framework.

    Next issue is that if i try to turn it on from Programs and Features in the control panel it throws me back to the initial error of not being able to install it which takes me back to the link above and method for fixing it which doesn't include the information
    for Method 2.

    I'm starting to think MS are purposely making it uninstallable at this point.

    Any help would be much apreciated.

    Unable to download any framework for .net - (error code 0x80070002)

    OK, the Windows 10 Feature installation method should have been straightforward, but since that errored out as well, something else seems to be going on with your Windows, so wait for somebody with more experience to suggest a way out.

    In the mean time, if you haven't already, you could give muchomurka's suggestion a go as well with the elevated prompt and an install media to see if it works. The following link shows the detailed steps involved.
