.net 3.5 NOT Installing on Windows 10 - Error code: 0x800F01F

Hello,

We just purchased a couple of Surface Pro 4's and for the life of me, I cannot get .net 3.5 to install on them. I've tried everything that I can think of, and it doesn't work. I get the error code listed above.

I've tried through https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=25150 as well as right through the "Turn Windows Features On/Off" in the Windows control panel.

I've seen someone post something about the "Dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /source:F:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess" command however; since it didn't come with a disk, I don't know where to find the source disk.

Does anyone know how I can get this to install correctly?

Thank You

This article from Microsoft says that it comes with Windows 10 but you may have to go into the Control Panel to enable it.  https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb822049(v=vs.110).aspx

Just download a win10 .iso file, double click it, so it gets mounted (let's assume, it mounts as something else than f:) and adjust your command to match the new drive letter.

Ok, I was able to figure it out.  Like you said McKnife, I downloaded a separate ISO from my VLSC site and  mounted it, and then changed the source to that drive. Worked like a charm.

Thank you everyone for your advice.
