    .NET Framework 3.5 error 0x800736B3


    hey there, so i recently upgraded to windows 10 and today while trying to launch a game i got a message saying i don't have .NET Framework 3.5 installed. every time i try to install it, though, it doesn't work and it always gives me the same error: Reference assembly not installed in the system, error 0x800736B3. i tried enabling it in Windows Features, but it stops halfway through and says changes couldn't be applied. i've tried following various instructions but nothing seems to work. any help is greatly appreciated!

    Insert your setup media and run this cmd.

    Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /Source:X:\sources\sxs /all /LimitAccess

    replace x with the drive letter of your setup media

    i tried that already (many times) and i always get the same thing back:

    C:\Windows\system32>Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /Source:E:\sources\sxs /all /LimitAccess


    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.10240.16384


    Image Version: 10.0.10240.16384


    Enabling feature(s)
    [==========================100.0%==========================]


    Error: 14003


    The referenced assembly is not installed on your system.


    The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log
