Dot Net Framework 3.5 on Windows 8

Windows Power ShellAfter migrating to Windows 8; Some of my old applications were not able to execute due to non-availability of Dot Net Framework 3.5. Dot Net Framework 4.0 is provided with Windows 8 but downloading the standalone installer version of 3.5 was not possible (Even the standalone version tries to connect to the Internet; And in many cases that failed too which I came to know of some blogs online.)

But did you knew that Framework 3.5 can be directly installed on Windows 8 provided you have the DVD\ISO of Windows 8. If you have that then its just a command from the power shell and you are done. Here is it how it can be done.

 

1. Mount the Windows 8 DVD\ISO.

2. Open the Windows Power Shell with Administrator privileges.

3. Execute the following command (You DVD Driver letter as X):

Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName 'NetFx3' -Source 'X:\sources\sxs'

And voila; you are done.

    Luckily for you, I have discovered a way to permanently rid yourself of the red ring of
    death for good and it doesn’t involve sending your console away to Microsoft or pay for costly repairs. You tell Jimmy to do his college assignments and Jimmy quits halfway through them when you’re not looking.

    You generally want them simply and freed from cost of
    cost.
