    Hello all,

    I Enabled .NET 3.5 on Windows 8.1 Update WIM by this:

    Dism /image:C:\mount /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess /Source:C:\8.1\sources\sxs

    And everything went successfully and it seems to be enabled right now.

    But, how can I test it?

    Currently I don't know any application which needs .NET Framework 3.5 AND NOT 4.x.

    Can anyone give me any application to test whether .NET 3.5 is enabled or not?

    Regards,

    Control Panel / Programs and Features / Turn Windows Features on or off >>> should show it enabled :cool2:.

    A square or a full tick?

    Normally .NET 3.5 is enabled, not the other two options :cool2:.

    I use a freeware program: ASoft .NET Version Detector...is a lightweight tool that gives information on the different versions of Microsoft .NET that are installed on a machine. Just google it and run, no install required.

    Can we use this command without installation DVD? Do we have to connect to Internet during this command execution?

    If you have Visual Studio installed, you can see NetFramwork installed from the New Project Dialog
