Unable to install Visual Studio 2008 on Windows 2008 R2

I am trying to install Visual Studio 2008 on my Windows 2008 R2 machine.

This is the first time I am using the Windows 2008 R2 machine and I was wondering why I am getting the following error message.

Tool to install or configure Microsoft NET Framework 3.5

Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Setup

You must use the Role Management Tool to install or configure

Microsoft. NET Framework 3.5.

OK

I see that the machine already is installed with .NET 3.5.1 framework, but somehow it is not being recognized.

Does anyone have any idea about this error message?

When I read and analyze the error message while installing the utility, I am deeply troubled what might be the cause of this error, I turn OFF and ON my computer to have a fresh start, when I tried again doing the same process, still the same error appeared, I also scan my computer for some virus, but no virus was found, please share your ideas on this scenario, thanks a lot.

You just need to enable the feature from the Server Manager.

install the .NET Framework 3.5.1 Features from the Add Features Wizard

Before install Visual Studio 2008 install the .NET Framework 3.5.1 Features from the Add Features Wizard in Server Manager. Then your problem will solve.

Usually .NET Framework will come with other programs that need the .NET Framework system.

.NET Framework was important for some big game developers and some programs because of the function.

Some of these programs that need .NET Framework didn't include the .NET Framework installation because they want to minimize the installer size, but some of these will include the .NET Framework installer in their program installer package for user convenience when install theirproducts.

The program will install without mention us about the install progress of the .NET Framework package, so that we never realize that we already have a .Net Framework installed at our drive.

The problem that you see can cause by that scenario, that you already have the .NET Framework but the service was not enabled by somehow, so the .NET Framework that already at your drive will try to stop you for installing them, because you already have them.

For this problem, you just need to set enabled your .NET Framework service that's already installed on your drive manually.

To do these settings, here is the setup:

  • Go to "Server Manager", then go to "Features" tab, then choose "Add features wizard",
  • Inside the wizard, you can search and check .NET Framework for enabling the .NET Framework service,
  • Then, finish them.

After that, now try to run again installer in your .Net utilities.

Now you will pass this error for installing your .Net utilities because the .NET Framework will detected have installed by them.

Hope this solution will solve your problem.
