.Net 3.5 Sp1 Won’t install in Windows 8?

When you start using windows 8 and installing some software you might find that things won’t work.

The first classic problem is Windows Identity foundation 3.5 isn’t not enable

Also you will find you can’t install software as easily as you use it.  It has moved to a server type arrangement where you have to enable certain software rather than install it.

Sometimes you will find that although you download something like .NET 3.5 you can’t run the installer because you have to enable it in the add windows features.  The problem I was having was it threw an error when I tried to enable .NET 3.5

if you run into this problem this forum post has the solution


The answers from the page


Put the DVD in the drive or mount the iSO and run this from a CMD with adminrights:

dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:d:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

(replace D with your DVD drive). This installs .net 3.5.1 without internet access.



if your version is 8102

you can try this:

first put your windows 8 cd-rom and opne cmd runs as administrstor then input the order



dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:d:\sources\sxs



d:is your CD-ROM

onther way

first put your windows 8 cd-rom and opne cmd runs as administrstor then input the order


xcopy d:\sources\sxs\*.* c:\net35 /s   (d: = CD-ROM)

Dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /All /Source:c:\net35 /LimitAccess
