    Okay. I got it working. Here is what I did (holds breath): I restarted windows. Yup.

    I restarted and everything finally worked. Odd.
    Did you install any updates before the restart @jeremiahburt

    You can try:
    1. Delete everything under: C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
      Those are left over from Windows Updates and no longer needed.
    2. From Admin Command prompt, run:
      Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    3. Turn on Net Framework 3.5 from programs & Features again to see if it helps.


    FYI, This problem has been going on in the previous versions of Windows. That's why I mentioned this in Windows 8 Forums that you should turn on Net Framework 3.5 right after Windows Installation to avoid conflict with third party softwares. It works every single time for me.

    Temporary workaround


    Hi Ethelwulf,

    I read a workaround somewhere (not sure if this is the right way moving forward).
    Download and install 'Install.NET Framework 3.5 via DISM' (Offline install of .NET Framework 3.5 in Windows 10 using DISM) and restart your system, it might start working.

    Good luck :)

    I think some of the features that are supported in 3.5 are not supported in 4.6, due to which you would need to install 3.5 separately.

    someone recommended downloading the file "net35_[winaero.com]_1620" for installing it.

    Hope it works

    Hello guys,

    I have the same issue, but i'm a little bit afraid to proceed, as the computer which i want to try this, is in a remote location, 15hours away.

    Remote computer Windows 10 Pro version 1703 build 15063.540
    And the media i want to load the NetFX2.0 from, is version 1511.

    Do you think that i will face any issues?

    Awaiting yours
