It´s always "The source files could not be found." with DISM


  • I´m trying to add .NET Framework 3.5 to Windows 8.1 image. I use install.wim. I also have a source DVD media. Whatever I do, I always get "source files could not be found". I got mounted install wim in D:\OSD\Images\Mount and DVD media on X:

    Here what I tried:

    1. Dism /Image:D:\OSD\Images\Mount /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /Source:D:\OSD\Images\Mount\Windows

    2. Dism /Image:D:\OSD\Images\Mount /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /Source:X:\sources\install.wim

    3. Dism /Image:D:\OSD\Images\Mount /EnableFeature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /Source:D:\OSD\Image\Mount\Windows\WinSxS

    4. Dism /Image:D:\OSD\Images\Mount /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /Source:D:\OSD\Image\Win81Enterprice_x64\install.wim

    ..And few other options. What is wrong with DISM? I had lot of troubles with DISM and PS Enable-WindowsFeature cmdlets lately.
