I have just built a new MIS server which has Server 2012 installed and no other features. By default .NET 4.5 feature is installed and enabled. I have just installed SQL 2012 and need to enable/install SQL Server Management Tools but I'm getting an error saying that .NET 3.5 needs to be installed first.
I have tried installing .NET 3.5, and uninstall 4.5 to allow 3.5 on but recommendations strongly say not to uninstall .NET 4.5.
All I need to do is 'Add' the 'Management Tools - Basic & Complete' via the SQL Server 2012 Setup
When I try and Add .NET 3.5 via 'Add Roles and Features Wizard' I get the following message:
""Installation of one or more roles, role services, or features failed.
The source files could not be found. Try installing the roles, role services, or features again in a
new Add Roles and Features Wizard session...........
And I can't disable .NET 4.5 as the check boxes are greyed out.
Any advice helpful
