In my last message, I mentioned the .NET function in Windows 8. It is necessary to run many programs under Windows, but it is disabled by default. If you are trying to need software or an application that requires.NET Framework 3.5, you may have received the following message:

To enable it, you must now switch to Windows Feature. Access is via the Control Panel > Programs and functions. If you do not have a strong Internet connection on your system, downloading the required files may take a little longer, making the process too long.

Many users also told me that they had errors0x800f0906 when they marked the first option in the image above and then pressed OK. Even if you try to download the full .NET installation, it is 291 MB and you need a fast connection to do it quickly.
