Windows 8 – vSphere 5.0 Install .net Error

I have recently been using Windows 8, in a effort to learn the up coming version of Windows

I hit a couple snags.

First, I get a compatibility message. 

I quickly enabled XP mode.

Then came a message about .net

I tried the auto install.

 Epic Fail…

Then I found the following blog post!

Windows 8 ā€“ Installing the .NET Framework 3.5


dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:g:sourcessxs
from an administrative CMD. ā€œgā€ is the drive where you have your win8 installation files.

so for me, It was the following steps.

1. run cmd as Administrator.

2. dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:d:sourcessxs

3. Reinstall vSphere Client.

I hop this helps anyone trying out Windows 8.

Thanks for reading!
