    Hello, I have installed .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 8.1 PC but how do I reinstall these Windows update: KB2966826

      If you had to uninstall these updates, you should install .NET Framework 3.5 first and then install these updates in sequence. Here are the direct download links for these updates specifically for Windows 8/8.1 (64-bit):

    now, I could install dotnet 4.6 by its download file,
    But 6.1, 6.2 and 7.0, 7.1 are not installing on w8.
    Any help?

    Also, I could not installed using DIMM method from flash drive,
    then I unzipped winodows 8 ISO using winrar, extracted only entire sxs folder on harddisk, and changed the path in dimm command to lead to that sxs folder location.
    And DIMM command then installed without any fuss.

    Of course, DIMM command has to be run in a command prompt (Admin).

    my w8 had KB2966826 already installed on installation,
    but I could install 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 using Dism method.
    So I guess, uninstalling these updates is not really required.
    Please verify.

    The Third method works nice. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
    P.D. The correct path to the Windows DVD should be D:\sources\sxs
    (It took me a while to understanding… You should correct it.)

    Hi I need some help… tried four steps, but the one using the windows 10 disc, that I don’t got. Everytime i tried the answer was always the same, showing the windows features so I can download on demand, even without internet. I tried to disable W Defender but don’t seen to be possible… I don’t know what to do, and the app just run with the 3.5 and the version is win 10.

    What if: “Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair” does not exist in my Windows 10? I have spent a couple of hours going through every line in GPEdit and cannot find this statement; is there a way to add?

      I have tried this in Windows 10 and can confirm that “Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair” setting is available in Windows 10. Can you tell which edition of Windows 10 you’re using?

        sorry for the delay; I’ve been unreachable for the last week or so. I am using Windows 10 Home, 32 bit, Build 10240. Although my ASUS Netbook has a 64-bit processor, with only 1 Gig of Ram, the 32 bit is actually faster than the original Windows 7 Starter that came with it. However, to avoid the first question coming to mind, Windows 10 was a clean install vice an update over Windows 7.

        I just came across an article at http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2015/08/07/windows-10-group-policy-admx-templates-now-available-for-download.aspx that describes that not all of the group policies were released with the last Windows 10 update, and has provided download and installation instructions. The downside is that the installation did not occur in the default directories; so I now have a Group Policy folder under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Group Policy\Windows 10\PolicyDefinitions\en-us (and folders for all other languages)\*.adml. I believe the file I need is Servicing.adml; however, gpedit does not appear to know where it is; I even copied it to the default policy directory–no help there either.

        So to make a long story short; I still do not have “Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair” under any of the folders in GPEdit.

          Since you have mentioned Windows 10 Home edition, I seriously doubt that Windows 10 Home edition actually comes with Group Policy Editor. Are you able to open the Group Policy Editor using Run –> gpedit.msc ?
          The link you specified deals with the Windows Server side of things which is not normally used on standalone systems.

          If you don’t have Group Policy editor installed, you may download and install it from here:

          I have not tried it myself but the reviews suggest that it works on Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and hopefully Windows 10 too.

          If you want to run the Group Policy Editor normally using the Run dialog after installation, You’ll also need to go to “SysWOW64” folder present in “C:\Windows” folder and copy “GroupPolicy”, “GroupPolicyUsers” folders and gpedit.msc file from there and paste them in “C:\Windows\System32” folder.

          After this, you may want to follow the steps that I have specified in the article. Hopefully this should solve your case. If not, please let me know so that we may proceed further in another direction of solution.

    And if you are using Windows Server 2012, the installation of .NET Framework 3.5 is a little different. You will need to open add roles and features wizard and add .NET Framework 3.5 under features. If WS2012 is not able to connect to the Internet, you can give an alternative source for installing the framework right within the same interface. All this is explained in this wonderful tutorial:
