How do you turn windows features on or off with Microsoft Windows 7 Embedded Standard Operating System?

In particularly  'Microsoft .NET Framework version 3.5' (or better)' for StorageCraft's ImageManager version 6.1.

I tried downloading the DISM.exe, which is supposed to allow you to turn windows features on or off (which is currently disabled by the administrator but it is not available on Microsoft's site, and the other site I tried sees it as a Trojan.

Is there possibly a registry key I could change?

Hi,

you can find the DISM.exe in windows 7 media CD in d:\Sources folder.

then You can use the Windows installation media as the file source when you enable the .NET Framework 3.5 feature. To do this, follow these steps:

1.Insert the Windows installation media.

2.At an elevated command prompt, run the following command:
Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source:<drive>:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess
Note In this command, <drive> is a placeholder for the drive letter for the DVD drive or for the Windows 8 installation media. For example, you run the following command:
Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source:D:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

I appreciate your attempts to help me here.  Unfortunately I do not have anymore time to spend on this issue.  Could not get the first WAIK solution to work, most likely due to my inexperience in working with .wim processes.

The second attempt gave me errors on saying all and limitaccess were unrecognized commands.  (Yes, I was running this as Administrator.)

Thanks again, but at this point, we have decided to install Windows 7 Professional and move on.

Don't have luxury of spending the time this issue needs to be resolved.  Just installing another O.S.
