Error Code:-2146498298, at the time of enabling Windows feature : NetFx3

A little bit earlier I have been going on successfully with installing SQL Server 2012 RC0 on a platform of Windows Server 8 virtual machine,  until the following error occurs. I think it’s not a typical error.

Do you have any idea? If yes, please help.

I haven’t enabled .NET Framework 3.5 prior to the installing of the said one, the installation process of SQL Server 2012 RC0 attempts to fix it up but unfortunate enough for me that it hasn’t come out successful.

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Release Candidate 0 Setup

The error message is as shown below ;

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Release Candidate 0 Setup

The following error has occurred:

Error while enabling Windows feature: NetFx3, Error Code: -2146498298, Please try enabling

Windows feature: NetFx3 from Windows management tools and then run setup again. For more

Hi Gregory!

You need to enable .NET Framework 3.5. Here are the steps on enabling it.

  1. Go to Server Manager for Windows Server 8.
  2. Click on the Manage Menu.
  3. Select Add Roles and Features.
  4. Click on Next.
  5. Select Role-based or feature-based installation.
  6. Select the server you will use.
  7. Click Next.
  8. Skip Server Roles and click Next.
  9. Check .NET Framework 3.5 Features in the Features page.
  10. Click on Install.

If it won’t work, then enable .NET Framework 3.5 using the command prompt. Type in this command: “dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /source:<path of the installer>” . Then run the installer again. The installation will succeed.
