comment Error 0x800F0906 while installing .Net 3.5 on Windows 8
I'm getting this error despite being connected to the internet and not having configured WSUS. There's also no installation media provided with my PC. I asked a similar question here: superuser.com/questions/616184/…

I've downloaded a 242,743,296 byte dotnetfx35.exe installer, this just brings up a window "An app on your PC needs the following Windows feature: .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) / Install this Feature. When I click Install it says "Searching for required files" and a progress bar that loops without any progress.

Thanks but it's not a duplicate (that's the same question I linked to and the answer doesn't work unless you have an iso or installation media). And no I'm not on a corporate network I'm at home and I haven't done anything with WSUS, nor do I have an administrator. I need this to run Bloomberg which gives an error on installation if 3.5 SP 1 of .net framework is not installed.

comment How do I find the location of an executable in Windows?
github.com/bmatzelle/gow/wiki is a descendant of Unix Utils that is more convenient to use, called Gnu on Windows. It has more utilities and an installer.

I'm also getting this. For reference, two of the fruitless MS forum discussions are below. answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-desktop/… answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/…
