Installing .NET framework 3.5 on Windows Server 2012 Essentials

Hi all,

I'm trying to install the Microsoft BCM Database Management Tool (version 2010) on a Server 2012 Essentials machine.

It stalls because it says it needs .NET Framework 3.5. When I download the file and try to install it, I get the following error msg:

Capture
What does this mean?

On a somewhat related note, is BCM going to be orphaned? There doesn't seem to be much about it on the web.

you need to install this feature from server manager properties

Login to Windows 2012 server

Right click on my computer==> Manage ==> it will open Server manager screen

select local server ==> Manage ==> Add role and feature ==> then press next button 4 time.. till you get option on features..

in that select .Net framework 3.5 features and install.

Thank you. I believe this Server already has .NET 4.5.2 installed. If the Server has a newer version of .NET installed, I don't understand why BCM needs an older version.

Will installing .NET 3.5 mess anything up?

this does not mean if server is having 4.5 then you do not required 3.5

just cross check in server properties.

net

you need to verify on the server if .net framework is installed.

above screenshot says this server has 4.5 installed. for your case you need to select .net 3.5 feature which will install 2.0 and 3.0 on the server
