Solved: How To Successfully Install .NET Framework 3.5 On Windows 10

Installing the .NET Framework 3.5 on my windows 10 is something that really took me time to get. I looked out on various forums, even used the windows troubleshooter. Alas, i couldn't get my desired result. I know the feeling one gets in these situations, trust me when i say i experienced one myself when i installed FIFA 2014 on my PC. I just wanted to play that old game, after installing it, i tried running it and it gave me a prompt message that i should install the .NET Framework 3.5 On my Windows 10. I clicked on the download link and it gave me .NET Framework window 10 error 0X800F081F message.


I was so displeased when i saw that error code, i searched the internet for the various factors that might be causing it and tried it all. Still, i couldn't install the dot net 3.5 offline installer for windows 10. I later got it after conducting several experiments and i don't want you too to go through the struggle i went through before installing the .NET Framework 3.5 On Windows 10.


Below is the complete guide on how to successfully install Microsoft .net framework 3.5 offline installer for windows 10.

Fix 0X800F081F Windows 10 Error Code

5. That's mine showing the current .NET Framework 3.5(includes 2.0 and 3.0) being installed on Windows 10.

6. Now untick the .NET Framework 4.6 advanced services in your own control panel, then tick the .NET Framework 3.5(includes 2.0 and 3.0).

7. Click on "OK" to begin the download process.

Note: The .NET Framework 4.6 advanced services comes with Windows 10 by default and hence cannot work alongside the .NET Framework 3.5(includes 2.0 and 3.0). So what this means is that you have to let go of the .NET Framework 4.6 advanced services in order to be able to install the dot net framework 3.5 on your PC.

8. Follow the prompt message and you'll see that windows will download and apply the necessary files for you.
