I am trying to install SQL Server 2008 trial server on the DEV server. When I run the installer, it gives me a error message saying that .NetFramework3.5 needs to be installed on this system before continuing SQL Server installation.
Now I downloaded .NetFramework4. But when I run it on the server it tries to download files from the internet. But on this DEV server there is no internet access.
Can someone please let me know
1. If I can get the complete installer for .NetFramework3.5 so that installer need not go to internet
2. Are there any other prerequisites that I need to take care of before installing SQL Server 2008
Thank you

You have .NET framework 3.5 SP1 on your installation disk. Also Windows Installer 4.5 is already there.

>>You have .NET framework 3.5 SP1 on your installation disk

When I try to install SQL Server 2008, it gives me the following error

"Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 installation has failed. SQL Server 2008 setup requires .NET framework 3.5 to be installed"

Please let me know how to go about it.

Thank you

If I can recall properly you should look at (or similar):
<installation drive>\x86\redist\DotNetFrameworks\dotNetFX35

Yes, sorry. Use <installation drive>\x86\redist\DotNetFrameworks\dotNETfx35setup.exe :)
Or ...\x64\ if you need 64 bit.

You need to run setup proper for your processor technology - in this case 64 bit:
<installation drive>\x64\redist\DotNetFrameworks\dotNETfx35setup.exe
Go level up and run setup - dotNETfx35setup.exe
I've just tried with 32 bit and it's working fine.

Can you check in Add/remove programs in control panel whether .NET 3.5 is already installed?
If it is installed and installer prompts you with that error mostly it means that your setup is corrupted.
