[OLD VERSION] windows 10 - wrong .net gets downloaded by the installer

Recommended Posts

The installer downloads dotnetfx.exe file if .net2.0 is missing, but on windows 10 .net 2.0 is contained in .net 3.5 feature and dotnetfx.exe file is obsolete.

In order to enable .net 3.5 on windows 10 you use DISM command or enable it in control panel / programs and features / turn windows features on and off.

I use personally following command to enable and download .net 3.5 on windows 10 from windows update:

DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All

You can find other uses of DISM, i.e. use offline install etc.
