Fix Installation Issues

Installing software can be a frustrating experience when it doesn’t go as planned. In this article, we’ll explore common installation issues and how to fix them, so you can get back to what you were doing without any hassle.

Ensure that your Windows 10 operating system is fully up-to-date before attempting to install .NET Framework 3.5.

Enabling .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 10

One solution is to use the DISM command via Command Prompt. Here are the steps:

Step 1: Open Control Panel and go to Programs > Turn Windows features on or off.

Step 2: Check the box next to .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0).

Step 3: Click OK, and Windows will start installing the feature. If it fails, move on to Step 4.

Step 4: Open Command Prompt as an administrator.

Step 5: Type “Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source: /LimitAccess” and hit Enter. Replace with the path to the folder containing the installation files or the Windows installation media.

If these steps don’t work, you can also try using the dotnet 3.5 offline installer or contacting specialized repair agents for assistance. Remember to check your equipment warranty and any liability disclaimers before proceeding.

Windows 10 may not be compatible with certain software or features, including .NET Framework 3.5.

SCCM installation for Windows 10 v1809 and higher

To install SCCM on Windows 10 v1809 and higher, ensure that the operating system is up to date with the latest Windows Updates. Install the dotnet 3.5 offline installer and ensure that the framework version is 3.5 SP1. If you encounter an installation error with error code 0x800F081F, it may be due to missing sources SXS files. To fix this, use the Windows Server 2012 installation media and locate the sources SXS folder. Copy the entire folder to the SCCM server and run the DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess /Source:C:sourcessxs command in an elevated command prompt. Ensure that the SCCM installation process is carried out by a team with the necessary specialization and coordination.
