The .NET Framework is a technology that supports most of the next generation application in our Windows based machines, newer version of the .NET framework such as 4.5 are already available and pre-installed on Windows 8.1 but some of the windows application are still not compatible with it and will work only with versions 3.5 and below.
This issue occurred to me after installing the new Windows 8.1 on my Dell Latitude.
I encountered an unlikely error in which I cannot install some of my application because I need version 3.5 of .NET. Usually .NET Frameworks are automatically installed and if they're not available you can always use Windows Update.
Unfortunately, I did not succeed with the installation of the .NET 3.5. An error prompted me that it cannot be installed. Good this is I found a great solution over the internet that I’d like to share with you. :)
SOLUTION Let's now proceed with the tutorial on how to solve this problem. Step 1 Insert your Original Windows 8.1 DVD or Bootable Flash Drive Step 2 Open PowerShell of Windows 8.1 (Start then type "PowerShell" anywhere then right click open as administrator then hit Enter)
|Windows 8 New Start Search :)|
|Press Run as Administrator|
- Note: Replace "X" with the actual letter of the Windows 8.1 Installation files.
- Note 2: Make sure that you have internet connection
- Note 3: Press Enter :)
Step 4 Wait for the installation completion and ENJOY! Cheers! :)
