SQL Server 2012 install error enabling Windows Feature NetFx3
Posted on 2014-02-15
On Windows Server 2012 Standard, I tried to install the SQL Server 2012 Client Tools. Upon doing so, I got an error message advising to enable Windows Feature "NetFx3".
So, I went through Server Manager to attempt to enable .Net Framework 3.5, but it failed.
I do not have the Windows Server 2012 installation media. Is there a way of getting .Net Framework 3.5 enabled, without the media, so that I can get the SQL Client Tools installed?
