Today I hade a small issue a a customer which I thought I write down since repetition is a good thing…
I was installing SQL on a Windows Server 2012 and I needed .NET Framework… this tends to be a little tricky since I did not have the media… So here we go.
Start the Group Policy Editor
Go to Computer Configuration – Administrative Templates – System
Enable Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair and select Contact Windows Update directly to download repair content
Use dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /all to start the install and wait for it to finish
That is all for today
