Thanks for the reply. I had already seen a similar solution and tried it. I went and clicked the checkbox to turn on the Windows .NET Framework 3.5. When I hit OK it searches for the required files but then tells me that Windows needs files from Windows Update to finish installing some features.
So I hit the download Windows files button and it teels me Windows couldn't compete the required function. It reports the error code "0x800F081F" and none of the features have installed.
Has anybody any workarounds for this?
