Can anybody out there help me get Net framework 3.5 to install?! I've tried every "fix" out there and nothing worked. DISM, online installs, etc...I can't get it to install for the life of me. I dont wanna have to reinstall Windows 10 or revert back to 7. :(

Hello,

You may first check if the .NET Framework 3.5 is available in the Control Panel on Windows 10 and if available, you may enable it from the Control Panel to install it on the computer. To check if the.NET Framework 3.5 is available in Control Panel and to enable it, please follow these steps:

a) Press “Windows Logo” + “R” keys on the keyboard.
b) Type “appwiz.cpl” in the “Run” command box and press “ENTER”.
c) In the “Programs and Features” window, click on the link “Turn Windows features on or off”.
d) Check if the “.NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)” option is available in it.
e) If yes, then enable it and then click on “OK”.
f) Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation and restart the computer, if prompted.

You may refer to this Youtube guide as well on how to install .Net Framework 3.5;

I've tried both of those fixes as stated and i even tried them again now. It just doesnt work. When i enter the DISM code thing. It says "cannot find the file specified" same goes for when i try to install 3.5. I have friends with Windows 10 who dont have a 3.5 issue T_T
