Does windows 8 run .NET Framework 3.5?



By default, Windows 8 comes with .NET Framework 4.5 RC installed in your computer . However, .NET Framework 3.5 needs to be installed manually since it does not include in Windows 8.  This is the reason why you are not able to run your program. In order to solve this, you can either  enable the .NET Framework 3.5 in your Control Panel or install the .NET Framework 3.5 on demand while attempting to run the application which requires the .NET Framework 3.5 . Both of these require an Internet connection to be completed.

Installing the .NET Framework 3.5 on Demand

When you are running an application which requires the .NET Framework 3.5 enabled on your computer or either you are running it for the first time, the following message will be prompted :

Choose Install this feature in order to enable the .NET Framework 3.5



Enabling the .NET Framework 3.5 in Control Panel

You may also enable  the .NET Framework 3.5 on your own in  Control Panel. Open your Control Panel, select Programs and Features, select Turn features on or off and finally check Microsoft  .NET Framework 3.5 checkbox.



I hope this information will help you . Thanks.
