How to enable .NET Framework on Windows 8 systems using cmd



Windows features are a bunch of items that are included in the system for advance uses. In windows 7, most of the features are enabled by default. One important feature is the .NET Framework. Most windows programs depend on this particular feature in order to run properly.

In windows 8, you require an active internet connection for this. But today I’m going to show you how to do it the simple and easy way.

All you need is a Windows 8 installation CD or ISO.
First insert the CD or the ISO containing the Windows setup.

Open the folder and look for a particular folder named sxs. Copy this folder and paste it at C:\. So you’ll have something like C:\sxs

Now open cmd as administrator. Then type in the following command:

dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:c:\sxs /LimitAccess

Or you could just copy and paste the code into cmd.
I might take about 3 minutes complete. Once done, close the cmd window.
All done.
