I've been browsing the forums and haven't run across anybody with this exact same question.
I am unable to update / remove / repair .Net 3.5
I've downloaded the .net 3.5 installer. When i run the exe i get the "You must use "Turn WIndows features on or off" in the control panel to install or configure Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5." Error
Next i've gone to the control panel "Turn windows features on or off". Here the Microsoft Net Framework 3.5 box is filled in. I have tried checking the box, and leaving it blank but get the same error message every time after i click I am unable
to change the status of the box without getting an error after trying to apply the changes. "An error has accured not all of the features were sucessfully changed."
Next, i ran the .NET cleanup tool (dotnetfx_cleanup_tool). The cleanup tool says it has sucessfully run - but i'm still unable to install .NET via the control panel or downloaded exe. Below are the first few lines of the log file generated by the .NET
cleanup tool. I've run the cleanup multiple times, but the files never seem to be deleted.
What are my next steps? I'm beginning to think its time for a os re-install.
