      Apologies for this inconvenient issue

  41. I sincerely want to thank you for this. I was struggling to run FIFA 14 on my windows 8 pc because of this missing .net framework 3.5. I looked into many forums that suggested to enable the framework from windows on and off feature or install offline using a windows 8 cd. The first method gave a download error and the second couldn’t be performed as I didn’t have windows 8 installation cd. You are a life saver at the end of the day. Thank you very much.

  42. Thanks alotsssss!
    I was been confused until i reach this amazing website, thanks alots sire!

  43. HI,I recently bought the windows 8.1 Tablet (be tablet) And I install the dotnet3.0 by above way.But I got error massage.I can’t not do.Please help me.

  44. I gave up. I decided not to waste any more time, so I formatted and installed a new copy of windows 10 with .NET Framework 3.5 pre-installed. Everything went on smoothly except for one problem with FileHippo App Manager v1.47.0.193 which checks for updates for all installed software. Instead of giving the results, it gives the following error message: Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Strange enough same problem happened before formatting and I thought it is caused by .NET issue. Now I no longer have this issue but still the same problem occurs. Thanks for your help. This is my last post on this issue.

  45. I think I found how to specify the “source” option using Windows 10 64 bit image downloaded from Microsoft and mounted on my virtual drive [H] and using the following command:

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:H:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess

    Same error code and message as before when I ran the command without specifying a source image (as mentioned in my previous post).

    By the way I ran the following command [sfc /scannow] and got the following result:
    [Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them]
    I understand from this that some of system files are corrupt. Can this corruption be cause of my .NET Framework problem?

  46. I did that a few days ago and did it again a minute ago. The Cleanup part was successful but the RestoreHealth part was unsuccessful giving me the following message:
    Error: 0x800f081f
    The source files could not be found. 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 http://go.microsoft. com/fwlink/?LinkId=243077. The DISM log file can be found at c:\Windows\logs\DISM\dism.log
    Can you please tell me how to use the “source” option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature? I really don’t know how to do that and the link was of no help to me.
    Thank for you help and patience.

  47. One more thing Just to complete the info for you. When I try to enable .NET Framework 3.5 from turning windows features on and off in program and features in the control panel, I get the following message: Error code: 0x800736B3 The reference assembly is not installed on your system.

    1. Before You format your PC and reinstall the System, Please Try these two commands, and feed me back with the results!

      First Command:
      Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

      Second Command:
      Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

      After apply those Commands, Try to Enable the .NET Feature from my tool or any other way you feel comfort with.

      Thank you.

  48. Using your software, or using Dism command through elevated CMD to install .NET Framework 3.5 either from a Virtual drive of Windows 10 64 bit or bookable USB, from [C:\Windows\winSxS] all yielded the same error: namely, Error: 14003 The reference assembly is not installed on your system. If all fail and if you cannot suggest any practical help for me, I am thinking of reformatting and doing a clean install of a fresh copy of windows 10 Pro 64 bit, and then immediately try to enable .NET Framework 3.5 through turning windows features on and off through program and features in the control panel (setting). Hopefully this procedure will work. And if it does work, this means some windows updates are responsible for such a problem.

  49. This issue is driving me crazy. I spent hours googling for a solution. Your software was the last solution I tried. Nothing worked. All failed. I have windows 10 64 bit. I tried enabling .NET Framework 3.5 in the control panel, used offline installer with windows 10 ISO image mounted on a virtual drive using DISM.exe. I was very careful in running the command as an administrator and making sure the command is correct and the windows ISO image is 64 bit. I am guessing here. Would some windows security updates cause the problem? Anyone can thing of a solution?

  50. Thx only i hope you can fix the message box “Operation Completed (See the window log for results) Do you want to clear Temp folder from extracting files ? soon!

    So its fully silent install, so i can intregrate it into my unattended version.

  51. Thanks in advance. I need to install AutoCAD 2016, but the PC has no internet and .NET 3.5 is required by installation program. I try diferents downloads modules of “Microsoft Website” but no functioning. Thank very much.

  52. After so many hours searching the internet for this fix, tried everything i saw on other sites, NONE OF THEM WORKED!! including the article on microsoft website. Then Finally, a 65MB file was just the solution. Thank You Very Much…. Am adding this site to my bookmark immediately!!!!

  53. I am sorry but it doesnt enable my features on W10 Home – Czech version.
    I tried to enable them manuály but i still get the 0x80070002 error.

  54. Hello,
    Thanks for great job!
    In Windows 10, in silent mode, i have the message box “Operation Completed (See the window log for results) Do you want to clear Temp folder from extracting files ?
    Can you arrange this issue ?
    What’s the installer ? NSIS ?
    Thanks

  55. windows 10 pro 64bit build 10240
    Build is 10.0.10240

  57. Guys you have really make my day. I receive an error code 800… on Windows 10 every time when I try to turn on 3.5 Feature or download the .exe from the official Microsoft web page. The whole day I have spent in reading through different forums hoping to find a solution for that problem. Finally ,after trying so many different steps your Offline installation pack was the right solution for our problem. Thank you Guys !! Wish you all the best!

  58. I Love You Man For This…
    You Really Made It Possible…
    Thank you so much…

  59. (Omg i’m spamming you so much today).

    It should not appears in silent mod :(

    Anyways, thanks for all your job, it’s really helpful

  60. I will annoy you again,

    do you think there are a way to do one universalle package for all windows uncompatible (Win8, Win8.1, Win10 and WinR2) instead of 4.

    I mean, there is probably some common files between all of them. Maybe can we save space by regrouping all in one ?

    Best Regards,

    Sanna

  61. I did but it was not appears. After computer restart it worked well, my bad. I guess i did to much tests and bugged something when i tested.

    1. I will check your script and get back to you soon

      Due the internet is offline, at my city Aleppo – Syria cause of War.

      Thank you for your understanding.

  77. Thanks for this! I’ve integrated to our company wide deployment scripts!
    The unattended setup works but I’m still being asked if I want to delete the temporary files… Any way around this???
    I created a script to check the Windows version and automatically install the correct one. The scripts assumes you download all the zips and extracted to a directory structure of \\server\folder\DOTNet\ with sub directories for each OS with the extracted files inside them. It also skips the installation if its already present.
    The script I’m using follows.

    @echo off
    echo Trying to verify OS Version...
    for /f "tokens=4-5 delims=. " %%i in ('ver') do set VERSION=%%i.%%j
    if "%version%" == "6.0" goto WindowsVista
    if "%version%" == "6.1" goto Windows7
    if "%version%" == "6.2" goto Windows8
    if "%version%" == "6.3" goto Windows81
    if "%version%" == "10.0" goto Windows10
    :WindowsVista
    echo Install Dotnet 2.0 first and run setup manually!
    timeout 120
    goto END
    :Windows7

  87. hi, i just downloaded the win8 version, i hope it work since most of my software needs this framework…i’ll get back as soon as I installed it..thanks in advance

  88. installed dot.net and it said it installed correctly, but when I tried to use your battery life app, it said an app on my computer needed the windows feature .Net Framework 3.5 and I needed to install dot.net from app store. I am running Windows 10 technical preview.

  89. I am downloading the Software hoping it works. If it works I all my problem will get solved. Will soon say what happened.

  90. There are some few special people out there that makes others people lives easy;)
    Thanks a million you just saved me:)

  91. Well done !

    Many Thanks!
    We tried everything what MS said, nothing worked.

    Regards

  92. hey,there was a problem running this sot,it says source file not found when installing,how to fix it?

    1. Try to clean the TEMP file using CCleaner or any-other software, and try again.

      Sorry for this inconvenient error.

  93. Sometimes is very difficult to install .net Framework 3.5 in Windows 7 and 8, specially when we are talking about x64 systems.
    Many thanks for your effort; I have installed it, with no problems.
    Big hug from Uruguay

  94. Thank you so very much! I don’t usually comment on blogs, but you were such a lifesaver, that this time I really must thank you :D This issue was truly driving me crazy.

  95. Thanks a lot. It’s really nice and I’m really appreciated. After trying another method for a long time until I found this, every problem solved.
    Thank you again.

  96. Thank you soooooooo much! Wasted a complete day trying to find a solution, until I found your tool. Can’t thank you enough, really great work! :)

  97. Hi Bro,
    Really you did a genius job to all people to save the time in a critical situation.
    i think you lead the Microsoft and your a good example to them because they not even come up with a good, easy or successful solution on this.
    wish you for a bright future to become a master in IT

    Thanks & B.Regards,
    Shafa

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Sir.

      People like you give me a lot of power to keep up, and continue development such tools.

      Have a good day :)

  98. j its really help me to achieve after a full day keep on try with over internet.
    your this blog very helpful in this day and the job done very happiest and successfully.
    I think Microsoft is fail in this scenario because a normal user never fix this issue.
    there so many alternative way even in the Microsoft web but its not easy way and not success.
    your a great Engineer in my view and appreciate very much for your dream future success.
    even I don’t know how to thank you. please keep in touch and keep me updated like this MAGICS

    Thanks in advance,
    Shafa

  99. Hi, Smart Arab,

    extracting the file is stuck at the middle and is not moving for hours…what seems to be the problem with this?

  100. Works like magic….thanks..but one thing:after the installation is complete,there is a notification on clearing the temp folder for installation files(y/n),and i didnt understand what is meant(i do now)….so that might be a problem for non professional users.

  101. You saved me! I noticed that /S ist working as well but I am still getting the message “do you want to clear temp folder…”
    Any way to get rid of that?

  102. Could you help me? I can not uninstall KB2966826. In the control panel, when I select KB2966826, disappears the uninstall button. If I try to uninstall KB2966826 from the command prompt as an administrator, the system responds by saying that the security updates can not be uninstalled.

  103. There is no KB2966826
    KB2966827
    KB2966828 updates installed and when i enabling 3.5 it showing error.
    Please solve
    Waiting for a quick reply.

  104. Not working, getting error 0x800f081f. Source files not found.

    Windows 8.1 Professionnel, Canadian French environment.

  105. The Update with the kb2966827 also causes Problem to install the .Net Framework 3.5.
    In Windows 8 German.

  106. Thank you so much for your fine MS-workaround. Spent already hours in troubleshooting.
    I guess dotnet is included. Is there any way to reduce the size? I have to send it to a vessel via expensive satellite. dotnet 3.5 and all updates (WSUS) are onboard already.

  107. Sry, the command should look like this!
    wusa /uninstall /kb:2966826
    wusa /uninstall /kb:2966827
    wusa /uninstall /kb:2966828

  108. Hi guys,
    looking and googling for a few hours, I have now found out that it not only two Windows updates can prevent the installation of .Net 3.5 !!!
    This is a third KB2966827
    After I uninstalled this I was able to install .Net Framework using the installer offered here.

    Updates can be uninstalled with the following commands. (Run cmd.exe with elevated previlliges; in Windows 8 you can press Windows Key + X)
    wusa / uninstall / kb: {update} ID

    wusa / uninstall / kb: 2966826
    wusa / uninstall / kb: 2966827
    wusa / uninstall / kb: 2966828

    Many thanks to Smart Arab

    greeting
    Daniel

  109. after installing this file at the end it is showing 0x800f081f what should i do now i need .net 3.5 immediately to install solid works

  110. Thanks for this managed to get .NET framework to install on Australian Windows 8 Pro by deleting the update KB2966827.

  111. Same to me as stated above, I uninstalled the KB’s and was able to connect to MS Updates again. In my case “MS Update” is my own WSUS Server. And it has an Alternat Directory for Windows 8 SXS. And this worked again, once i uninstalled the KB’s (now I disalowed them in my WSUS too ;)

  112. Hi again!

    Additional I can confirm after deinstalling KB2966826 and KB2966828 and successfull installation of .NET 3.5 at next Windows automatic update both updates (KB2966826 and KB2966828) were installed successfully again (I run a Spanisch Win 8.1 Pro).
    Regards,
    Tester

  113. Hi all,
    I can confirm the approach from TFish (see above):
    After constantly failing with Error-Code: 0x800f081f DISM and not being able to install in Windows Features because it cannot connect to Microsoft Update I UNINSTALLED Updates KB2966826 and KB2966828. After doing so, I also was able to enable .Net 3.5 in Windows Features.
    That means, it was possible again to connect to Windows Update.
    I did not need to use the tool from SmartArab.
    @TFish, SmartArab: Thanks a lot for your help!

    1. Your are welcome, and I am glad that your problem solved,

      You can still use my tool for offline installation.

      Good luck.

  114. This was spot on. I have 2 U.S. versions of Win 8.1 pro and after many futile attempts at other methods, this one worked. It was as simple as removing those two security updates. Thanks a bunch. I can now install the games I want to play.

    Regards from the U.S. :-)

  115. tonight I will sleep because a problem joining me for several days is solved!
    i removed the 2 updates and was able to enable the framework 3.5.
    So thank all of you and a special bravo to Smart Arab.
    Reasons causing my problems:
    Microsoft Surface Pro
    W8.1 update
    program who needs FW3.5 PCTV HDTV USB-2 Stick for Satellite TV

  116. Thank you very much for your support. As a german, i was dealing with this issue for over two weeks now and slowly began to resign. After i uninstalled the two updates mentioned above, i was still unable to install the framework via the add feature dialoge. Your installer finally did the trick!

    Regards from Germany

    (Win 8.1 Pro x64, upgraded from Win 8)

  117. Hi, I also use Win 8.1 x64 Pro German and tried to use your tool. It said the installation would have been successful, but it wasn’t. So I removed those Updates and tried to do it the regular way (enable features and use windows update) and then it worked. So, if you remove those updates, there is no need for using the tool.

    But thanks a lot for creating it, because it is the more easy way for users with other versions of windows and also the only reason that I found my final solution for the problem ;-)

    (If you find some semantic or syntactic errors in this post, you’re officially allowed to keep them :P )

    1. Thank you sir for this information I will inform the others and put a credit for you at the main post,

      In any form you want, please let me know how you want the credit :)

  118. Hi smart arab, i have the same problem as all the germans here (Windows 8.1 Pro German) :) I can’t wait to try the new version that works even for germans :)
    btw you are fucking awesome. I mean fixing other people’s problems for free is not something a lot of people would do :) Thank you

    Greetings from Germany

    1. Thank you for your support,
      Please can you try to remove these updates and test my tool again
      KB2966826 and KB2966828.
      Thank you.

  119. I was able to enable Net Framework 3.5 by installing Windows 8, enable Net Framework 3.5, update everything and THEN update to Windows 8.1.

  120. I have been searching around numerous sites to fix this issue.. THE FIX for me! After constantly failing with Error-Code: 0x800f081f DISM and not being able to Install off Windows Features because it cannot connect to Microsoft Update is UNINSTALL Updates KB2966826 and KB2966828.
    After doing so, I was able to Enable .Net 3.5 in Windows Features HOORAY!!

    1. I will inform the other users, and see if this really works,

      I need to update the main post and put this as suggested solution

      How can I mention you in the main post and give you credits ?

    Hallo Regine Weiß!
    welche Version von Win 8.1 hast du? Was hast du gemacht, dass es bei dir geklappt hat?
    Ich hoffe du bist noch dabei und kannst zur Lösung beitragen. Es ist echt frusttrierend!!
    Wäre ich doch bei Win 7 geblieben. Heul.

  123. Hey,
    I have a German 64bit pro OS. The installation is running and give me the message:
    The source files could not be found
    Use the Source option to specify the location of the files that are required to restor…
    What I have to do?

    1. I am working on a solution for this problem, if you want to help, you can provide me with a link for Windows ISO German
      Thank you.

  124. I smart arab, to be honest I have no idea where to get the German ISO from. I “only” have the original DVD … I tried installing English language pack and then installing .net 3.5 using your tool but to no success either. Can I provide you with any log files?

    1. The log file is no use, I have many log files for other users who are using German Windows language.
      I will search for the ISO again, and inform all the users as soon as possible.

      Thank you, Sir.

  125. Hi, I hate “me too” threads, but… it didn’t work for me either (Windows 8.1 German Pro). Please let me know if I can be of any assistance fixing the problem.
