Server remove feature popup loop


Just trying to get rid of this popup reminding me of a failed 3.5 framework uninstall. I no longer want to uninstall it but the failure page pops up after every reboot.

Thanks in advance

.Net 3.5 and 4.5 are part of the Server 2012 O/S and it shouldn't have even let you try to uninstall it.  If its listed in Programs and Features, you might try repairing it which is one of its options; but, the scuttlebutt from the web is you may have to reinstall the O/S.

You uninstall/reinstall with this cmdlet in 2008 but I will see next business day

DISM /online /disable-feature /FeatureName:NetFx3
DISM /online /enable-feature /FeatureName:NetFx3

I'm pretty sure this worked. Disable was the same as removing but I think DISM is deprecated. I may have also tried powershell

There is no hint anywhere that DISM(.exe) is depricated. The PowerShell module is just another way to use (the feature) DISM.
