.NET Framework 2.0 and 3.5 feature install fails on Windows Server 2012 RC


  • I have downloaded VHD for windows Server 2012 RC and running this on Hyper-V. I am not able to install .Net framework 2.0 and 3.5 features via

    Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /featurename:NetFx3ServerFeatures /Source:c:\sxs /LimitAccess


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

    Everytime I am getting this error:

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 6.2.8400.0
    Image Version: 6.2.8400.0
    Enabling feature(s)
    [===========================66.6%======                    ]
    Error: 0x800f0906
    The source files could not be downloaded.
    Use the "source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see

    In my case none of the methods are working. I have sxs folder which is 275 mb in size containing 772 items.

    any other method to install this feature other than internet???
