6 thoughts on “Windows 8: .NET Installation Issue

  1. I just installed a copy of windows 8 (legit). When I went to install Adobe Acrobat Professional, I got a warning that it could not install as it couldn’t access .net 2.0. After searching for a while, I came across your website. I followed Mitch’s instructions to the T (don’t know much about PowerShell). Once I ran the command with Windows 8 DVD in the computer, the progress bar moved fast until it got to 64% complete. It stayed there for about 10 minutes. Then it moved to 98% for a couple of minutes. And then it finally said .net 3.5 had been installed successfully. I went back to the Adobe install, and it worked perfectly. Thanks for sharing this info.
