I have a brand new Windows 2008 R2 X64 server hosted in a VMWARE V2.0 environment. One of the first tasks I need to do is install SQL 2008 Standard but every time I try and run the install I get the message.
Microsoft .NET 3.5 installation has failed. SQL Server 2008 setup requires .NET framework 3.5 to be installed
I have rebuilt the server twice and get the same message each time. Also I have already installed .NET 3.5.1 via the server role so unsure why the install is failing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
