I have a work computer running windows 10, and with the way win10 does everything for you under the hood I would like clarification/help on the following because it seems like I am at a point of this cannot be done and I find it hard to believe.
- When installing 3rd party software and drivers for test equipment, it prompts saying .NET Framework 3.5 is required cannot continue- retry this install after you have installed .NET 3.5. And in win10 it conveniently pops up saying do you want to download from Microsoft.
- The location of my win10 pc does not have internet connection and I am for the most part prohibited from an internet connection. I thought an offline install should be possible but...
- is this correct: https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet-framework/net35-sp1 which provides
dotnetfx35.exe@ 231MB all that is needed?
- In running this
dotnetfx35.exeit still prompts to "Download & Install".
How does one do an offline install of .NET Framework 3.5?
If you're not relying on Windows Update as the source for installing the .NET Framework 3.5, you must ensure to strictly use sources from the same corresponding Windows operating system version. Using a source path that doesn't correspond to the same version of Windows won't prevent a mismatched version of .NET Framework 3.5 from being installed. However, this will cause the system to be in an unsupported and unserviceable state.
that sounds bad, like I should not be doing an "offline" install?
