How to install .net Framework 3.5 on Windows 10

One of the things I don’t like about W10 is that you need Internet to install .net Framework. This wasn’t necessary on XP or 7, only on 8.1 and 10, but gladly there is a way to avoid this.

You need 2 things:

  1. An ISO of your current OS (if it’s 10, an ISO of 10).
  2. An admin command prompt.

After having these 2 things, mount the ISO and open the command prompt. Type the following.

Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /All /Source:D:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

Where “D” is the letter of the drive where the ISO is mounted. Like this.


Press enter, and wait a few seconds. The process is quick and it’s not harmful to your OS in any way.
