    Default .NET 3.5 Installtion

    How do I install .NET 3.5 on Windows 8 without having an internet connection? Currently it's only possible to install the framework as new role and the data will be downloaded from the internet. Do you have an offline installer for machines which are not connected to the internet?

    The only way that I'm aware of to install .NET 3.5 (this includes .NET 2.0) is to go to the Control Panel. Type in "Turn Windows Features on or off", w/o the quotes. Then you can install .NET 3.5, you'll see it as an option.

    And the only way that I know of, & it's the best way, is through the internet. There are different versions of .NET 3.5, & other files will need to be installed for the installation to complete. Plus, this is a beta OS, one would have to know which installer to use to accomplish what you want. Had to do it myself, as a couple of my programs required .NET 2.0 for installation.

    Best of Luck,
    Cat

    Welcome, chen. You can try this command from elevated prompt.

    Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /All /SourceVDLOCATION:\sources\SxS /LimitAccess

    Please note that replace DVDLOCATION in the above command with the path to the windows 8 consumer Preview ISO.
