Windows 8 Offline Installation of .Net 3.5

Windows 8 include .Net 3.5 on the installation media.  It is however not installed by default.  To further complicate things it attempt to do an online installation if you enable it through the Windows Features.

To manually install directly from the installation media use the following command.  Just Specify the source drive letter. In this case it was D:

Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source:D:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

The installation should complete without requiring a reboot.

Checking the Windows Features you should now see that it is listed as installed.
