Unable to install .net framework 3.5 SP1 on Server 2008
Posted on 2008-10-20
Hi, I have a clean install of Server 2008 Enterprise x64. I'm trying to install SQL 2008 Enterprise x64, but it requires .net 3.5 SP1. It attempts to install it as part of the SQL install, but fails with the error "DepCheck indicates Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0SP1 (x64) (CBS) is not installed."
I've tried installing .net 2.0, but I get an error that says .net 2.0 is included as part of the operating system.
I found somewhere on the internet that you need to have IIS installed for .net 3.5 to work, so I installed that feature. Same error though, "DepCheck indicates Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0SP1 (x64) (CBS) is not installed.".
Anyone have any other ideas that I haven't tried yet?
