  • Greetings Mr Kapil Arya, I still have a problem with .Net Framework 3.5 even after the use of this tool and Ive also sent the logs. And how long will it take for the analysis to be done and I get the reply? Sorry for sounding so rude, I’m trying to understand why my AutoCad 2013 is not working anymore and how I can fix it, Im well aware of other AutoCad versions but I just prefer this one for now. Thank you.

  • Im using Window 10.

  • Kapil Arya

    ^^ Where you’ve send the logs? Let me know, I’ll escalate this further to right channel.

  • FYI, I can’t get NetFX3 to install on any of my new 1809 Win 10 desktops. You know the new ones we have to get to replace the EOL Win7 desktops. I’ve tried DISM, this repair tool, turning off WSUS, Powershell as admin, etc. Constant 800F095(4/0) errors. Had no problems until 1809 released. Please send a big thank you to ******* for breaking our main line of business application. Win10 prior to 1809 and every Win7 desktop ran fine.

    ^^ If you’ve installed .NET Framework on V1803, you don’t need to install additionally on V1809 after upgrade. In case if you doing this on clean install of V1809, see if you can downgrade back to V1803 and if that helps.

  • This tool is a joke to fix the “install” in Windows (where was this when I actually needed it!?).
    The good one you gave is: C:\Windows\system32>Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /Source:E:\sources\sxs /all /LimitAccess Where “E” is the Windows Install Disk (USB)! Kudos for that.
    In my case, I have to use the one from version 1903 (thou I work with 1809!). I just thought that Net3.5 is that in all the versions of windows I was right.]
    Thanks again for the Help you give us! Really Appreciated.
