Can not install .net Framework 3.5 on Windows Server 2012. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was having trouble in installing .net Framework 3.5 in Windows Server 2012. I tried many methods and did not work. At last I used the following method that worked.

    I searched internet for many months and at last I found the following files. I copied the files in C:\35 folder. Any folder name will do.

    Now :

    Run Powershell as administrator and run the command below.

    Install-WindowsFeature Net-Framework-Core -source "c:\35"

    I waited 10 minutes and it installed. At last I have managed to install it. 

    I hope this helps many people.
