In setting up SWL Server 2012, I am facing a critical error whose code is  -2146498298.

At the time of facilitating Windows feature: NetFx3, I was shown the following error message, saying

“Please try enabling Windows feature: NetFx3 from Windows management tools and then run setup again.”

 

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 information on how to enable windows feature, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=227143

I did as it says but nothing results positive.

I need help.

Can you give me a solution?

Please.

There are two ways on how to enable the .NET Framework 3.5. The first is to:

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

Second is enabling the .NET Framework 3.5 using the command prompt.

  1. Run cmd.
  2. Type in “dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /source:<path of the installer>” .
  3. Run the installer.

The installation of SQL Server 2012 should succeed now.
