    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.

    Every Windows ISO has a SXS folder inside the Sources folder, in there you can find the CAB file for enabling .netfx35, mount an iso of the same major build (1904x or whatever build you are running) and run this command in an elevated cmd prompt:

    Code:
    DISM /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess /Source:d:\sources\sxs\
    d = mounted ISO in explorer, adjust the drive letter or path to the cab to your situation.

    @abbodi1406 made a tool to achieve the same goal:

    abbodi1406's tool worked perfectly, thanks Enthousiast. Your help is highly appreciated.

    But just in case I would like to keep a backup of full 3.5 offline installer, any idea where can I find that ?

    any windows 10/11 iso have net frameworks in iso in sxs folder ( net frameworks 3.5 are specific to iso build )

    Good for you, best to enable it offline at ISO creation.

  11. No need. I've already tried navigating around that site, the layout is confusing to me.
