Fix: Windows 8 Enable Feature DotNET 3.5 Error 0x800F0906

In Windows 8 we can enable “NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) “ and “NET Framework 4.5” as shown below.
01
But once we click Ok and run the wizard, it will try to install .Net 3.5 and  prompt an error saying that, 
Windows couldn’t complete the requested changes.
Windows couldn’t connect to the Internet to download necessary files. Make sure you are connected to the Internet, and press “Retry” to try again.
Error code: 0x800F0906

This means using this wizard we cant install .Net 3.5 . Therefore to fix this issue, follow the steps listed below.
  1.  Insert the Windows 8 DVD in to CD ROM or mount the Installation ISO file. (If you have Win 8 ISO in you PC, you can simply right click on that ISO and select mount)
  2.  Use the CMD in run as Administrator
  3.  After that type the following command:
dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFX3 /All /Source:D:\Sources\SxS /LimitAccess
23
Now your Windows Feature of .NET Framework 3.5  is enabled. To verify go in to Windows Features
0 
Congratulations ..   now you have .net 3.5 enabled on your Windows 8 PC.
 
Make sure to give correct Windows 8 Installation Media Drive Letter in above command. if not you will get below mentioned error.

  4. @ kelvintrinity,
    Mount the ISO file directly (mine got D: )

    Then run: C:\>Dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /All /Source:D:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

    This will fix this issue and you have to run your CMD in Run as Administrator mode. Just check and let me know.

  7. Hi, I did a clean install of windows 8 the 64bit version. I also try downloading from internet (very reliable connection) the framework but gives me the general error I can see 0x800f0906. I mounted the iso and used the DSIM method posted here, tried copying the sxs folder and changing sources but 65.8% it still fails. Is this because I am running the 64bit version? I ask because when I check the content of the sxs folder on my media I can see lists of x86 folders nothing on the x64.

    Please help me.

  8. dunno if this helps someone.. but if you keep getting the error about "can't find source" is because /Source:d:\sources\sxs that line means your DVD is located in "D:" mine was in "H:" so you had to change that before :D now i works well :)

    1. Just try to use one of the Windows 8 DVD to run this Script. Because sometime I saw that when we use USB or a network location(with \Sources\SxS file )It's giving this error. and sometime this will take 30 min to give you that operation successfully completed window once you use a Windows 8 DVD

  13. dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:d:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess


    copy paste the above command in MS Dos(Command Prompt)
    where d:\sources\sxs is located at your windows 8 setup folder

    If failed then type the same command without /LimitAccess keyword
    Please copy paste only dont type it.. coz an space in command matters...
