I am trying to install .NET 3.5 to work on few legacy applications and this has been burning my head for past few weeks.
During installation a pop up window requests me to install .NET 3.5 and when i hit download it fails stating issues with internet connection. But internet works just fine
Tried enabling .NET 3.5 from Control panel it redirects to " Download from Windows update " and the download goes on forever ( best try 6 hours on 18mbps wifi keeps loading..)
Using Dism with and without /LimitAccess the process gets stuck at 65.8% and then throws a component error
Downloaded offline package 253 MB from microsoft when i tried to install it again asks me download 3.5 to launch dotfx35.exe which is the setup file :(
Tried everything from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2734782 no luck
Please help.. :(
