Hello, I need to run an app which needs .Net 3.5 installed. The machine has no Internet access hence I searched for offline installer for .Net 3.5 and found a downdload from visual studio site. When I tried to install it, the popup came up asking for 3.5 to be installed before the 3.5 installer could install 3.5 ?? How come do I need 3.5 installed to install 3.5 ??? I tried again, and found another offline installer, this time from Microsoft's site, again 231 MB just a little variation ib KB's in size compared to the previous installer I downloaded and it did the same thing. When I tried ti install it, a window appeared asking me to install .Net 3.5 before I could install 3.5 with offline Installer ? Am I doing anything wrong, is Microsoft retarded ? Could anyone help me locate an offline installer for .Net 3.5 that actually works ? Any help will eb greatly appreciated.
