  • Have you tried adding it as a feature? msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh506443(v=vs.110).aspx – Austin T French Aug 9 '15 at 19:04

  • What error do you get when trying to install 3.5? Your question needs a lot of work, fill in some steps, errors, what you have tried in depth. This is a Q&A site, not a help forum so going back and forth for nuggets of information is not productive. – Austin T French Aug 9 '15 at 19:08
  • 1) Initially i had uninstalled the updates from the Control panel --> Program and features --> view Installed updates 2) After that i clicked on the Turn windows feature on or off in the same program and feature option 3)Then checked the check box in front of the .net framework 3.5 and after that tried to install the files from net finally the downloading never ends. – D.
