Install .net 3.5 on Windows 10


I was wondering if there was a way to use the CAB file for .net 3.5 and install is via the kace deployment as a post installation task

Kind Regards

We do this with a zipped file and batch file command.

We zip up the sxs folder for .NET 3.5 and the batch file command.

the command xcopies the sxs file to a local sources temp folder C:\ITTEMP\Sources\ (with /E /Y switches) for example.

after the copy is done, it runs a DISM command to install .NET 3.5 from the local source.

DISM.exe /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess /Source:C:\ITTemp\Sources\sxs

If you have any difficulty get that done.  This works very well for us.

  • We've done it in exactly the same way and it works like a charm. - CTRL+ALT+DEL 3 years ago
  • This is how we have done this. With version 1809 we had to change up the DISM command to this Dism /Online /LogLevel:4 /Add-Package /PackagePath:c:\PATH\sources\sxs\microsoft-windows-netfx3-ondemand-package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~.cab /NoRestart

    But now with version 1903 we can install .net 3.5, but anything that follows in my scripted install fails. Suggestions? - kadams-c 2 years ago

I just run this command:
dism.exe /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFX3 /All /NoRestart
