I am a new member and this error is troubling me. When I try and download .NET framework 4.6.2 it says my component store is corrupt. I did some research and came up with the solution in command prompt (administrator) DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth. I ran this command and now it tells me that error: 3 "The system cannot find the path specified"

I have been trying to figure it out and fix it but can't get anywhere, any suggestions?

  • According to the tool. DISM is for the following. Are you trying to fix an image or your running OS? DISM enumerates, installs, uninstalls, configures, and updates features and packages in Windows images. The commands that are available depend on the image being serviced and whether the image is offline or running. – uSlackr Nov 29 '16 at 20:59

    @uSlackr DISM works with deployed Windows installations too, including one that is currently running. – gronostaj Nov 29 '16 at 21:01
  • Im running windows 8.1, and ultimately want to 'un-corrupt' the component store. – joegarner2106 Nov 29 '16 at 21:06
  • To download .NET framework 4.6.2 the store needs to be fixed and I am stuck on what to do – joegarner2106 Nov 29 '16 at 21:07
  • If you just run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth what happens? If that fails to work, it means your missing the source file, required for it to work. So download a Windows 8.1 ISO and run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:D:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess instead. – Ramhound Nov 29 '16 at 21:17
