Installing .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2

There might be requirements of installing .Net Framework 3.5 in Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2, and you will most likely run into problems while installing it.

To solve this, you can either:

1. Go to a command prompt and enter this:

dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /all /Source:d:sourcessxs /LimitAccess

command

2. Go down to “Specify an alternate source path” and enter “d:sourcessxs” as the path.

Now you can proceed with installation.
