Error code 0x800F0906 when installing .NET Framework 3.5

One of my clients bought a Microsoft Surface Pro. One of the applications that he needed installed wants to install .NET Framework 3.5. When you click on Search and Install Automatically, Windows 8 gives an Error code 0x800F0906 when installing .NET Framework 3.5. For some reason Windows 8 couldn’t connect to the internet to download the necessary files to install .NET Framework 3.5 even though the Surface Pro is connected to the internet an working correctly.

I have tried a couple of ways to solve this issue. Here is the one that worked for me.

Fixing Error code 0x800F0906 when installing .NET Framework 3.5:

Because the Microsoft Surface Pro does not have an on-board DVD Drive, I had to use a USB External DVD Drive to complete this method.

1.    Insert a Windows 8 DVD into the DVD Drive.
2.    The source of the .NET Framework 3.5 feature can be found in the following folder:

D:\sources\sxs (D: will be the drive letter of your DVD Drive)

3.    Open a command prompt by pressing WINDOWS KEY + R and type CMD in the box and press ENTER.
4.    At the command prompt, type the following command and press ENTER.

Dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /All /Source:D:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

5.    The installation might take a while but when it’s completed, .NET Framework 3.5 should be installed and enabled.

With this method I was able to fix the Error code 0x800F0906 when installing .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 8.
