Download Complete Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Setup

DOT_NET_framework Many new Windows applications requires latest version of Microsoft .NET framework which is version 3.5 at the time of of writing of this post.

If you go to Microsoft download center, then by default you will get live installer of approximately 2-3 MB’s while complete .NET framework requires 50-200 MB. Actually on the same page there are links to complete setup but they are placed in a way that anyone can hardly notice them. Seems like Microsoft wants you to download live installer but there are problems with live installer…

  1. It may hang forever if you have slow internet connection like dial-up, GPRS, etc.
  2. You can not use it at all if your computer is not connected to internet πŸ™
  3. Also if you are running pirated Windows better not to use any software/installer from Microsoft which connects to Internet.

Here I am giving you links to complete Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 & 3.5 setups which are gathered from Microsoft pages (links: v3.5 & v3.0)

# Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Setup

# Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 Setup

Do not worry about authenticity of above links as they are from Microsoft’s server! πŸ™‚

Update: If you are looking for offline installer for Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 then click here.

      1. Hi!

        I want to download .net framework 3.5.. anybody can give me a link or a website that i can download for free.. thanks!

    1. @humanas
      You can download this from a cyber cafe.
      Once downloaded, you will not need internet connection at the time of installation.
      Let me know if you have further questions… πŸ™‚

  4. This link is very very useful, can download the framwork in one big download rather than downloading the first 2.5Mb download and then waiting it to download by it self

    Thank u for who have done this great job


  5. Rahul,

    Thanks for making life easier for the rest of us. I have a computer that I never connect to the internet, so I really needed this. Microsoft is terrible about these things.

    Great work.

  6. Wicked sick. Thanks a bunch man. πŸ™‚ I tried downloading off microsoft but their speeds are REALLY slow.

  7. Thanks Rahul,

    …for your dedication and passion in making life livable for the rest of us. Yes, many of us do not even care for an internet connection however, need the dot 3.

    you know how it is.

    Thanks again.


  8. Hi!!! Dear Rahul Bansal,
    Bundle of thanks for offering such an amaizing and beautiful offer.Thanks once again.

  9. i have downloaded .net 3.5 already by hitting the link you gave above .. when i try to install its say the file is corrupted and the installation stops in the first three seconds after i run the set up .. is the set up file still working please ???

  10. Thanks a lot for the upload i was tired of downloading the same 50 MB download every time on my 256 kbps connection.

    1. @Dhawan
      Your welcome buddy… πŸ™‚
      Just for info… I didnt uploaded file anywhere. All download links are official download links hidden on Microsoft site.
      Also just for safety never download files from unknown uploader… πŸ™‚

  11. thanks, it helps me a lot… i tried downloading the 2.9mb version from Microsoft but the DL always restart from the top… thanks a lot now i can install without those problems @[email protected]

  12. When I download the link as shown above am I getting the entire NET Framework 3.5 application?
    The reason I’m asking is because I downloaded it and tried to run an application that required the use of NET Framework but the application didn’t recognized NET Framework.
    I wish I could download the application without the use of an installer.
    Do you have a solution?

  13. Hi, Rahul.

    Great job! Do you’ve the link for full NET Framework 3.5 SP1? Why not add other free softwares from M$ such as DirectX 9.0c last edition/month?

    Thanks for your kind support to many people. May God Bless U!

  14. i cannot connect? and im desperately looking for this full package..thought i finally found one but it still won’t work. Im sure it got something to do with my windows..

  15. Sooo many thank you’s on this page….. It feels like Thnaks Giving Day πŸ˜€
    Sorry guys had to be a bit cynical but don’t mean to offend anyone.
    Great post, needed this direct dwnld for the x32 3.0 FW.

  16. As same with me starting download from 0% again n again. Fried my mood πŸ™‚ google search find your page. Downloaded full version. Six alphebet’s word “THANKS” but behind this lot of meanings hides. Thanks again Rahul πŸ˜€

  17. Hi,

    I have Installed Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Setup successfully from the link u given. how can i apply Service Pack 1 separately to this?


    1. @buddhika
      Follow standard procedure buddy. You should not face problem as link I given above is standard one! πŸ™‚

      I can’t say anything for sure but on my system I am using SP3 and .NET framework 3.5 right now. πŸ™‚

  18. i have a vista 64-bit and need the .net framework 3.5 to install !! is there a separate link to 3.5 64bit version ??

  19. Hello, im trying to dl this .NET 3.5, but for some reason the link isnt working, says the netsite is not available. Same thing is with all the other Microsoft dl’s. This has been same for me since last month. Well just asking if anyone else has the same problem.

    1. @Janne
      As you can see from other comments, links are working well for other users. πŸ™‚
      So I suggest you to try downloading from other place like a cyber cafe or from a PC at college/office

  20. Thanks a lot dude.. I got this game GTA IV.. Played for 3 days.. The 4th day the game isnt playing and a Fatal Error pops up saying GTA IV Fatal Error WS10.. I tried everything.. I had Microsoft .Net Framework 3.0.. I searched for 3.5 but only 3 MB was showing.. Now I’l download full version and play the game.. Thanks a lot dude.. I mean really

  21. Thanks Bro,

    I wasted most of the day wrestling with Microsoft’s Online Setup, until I found this

  22. I had Net Framework 3.5 in my Dell Inspiron 9200. I had a problem and I removed it; When I tried to reinstall it from microsoft I keep getting ‘setup error’ when I tried to reinstall it through you web site I get the same error message ‘setup error’. I have used several programs including Paretologic RegCure to repair and optimize my pc however I continue to get the same error message whenever I try to reinstall Net Framework 3.5

    1. @Fernando
      May be your system files are corrupt.
      Or please uninstall, if you have any previous versions of .NET framework.

  23. thanks a lot guys!!!!!!! I was downloading this and it was going in a loop from 1% to 5% and then back to 1%, got it through the self installer dotnet35setup…

    I dont know if my OS is licensed of pirated one, still went to Microsoft site and download that 2.84mb file, do you guys will I be having any problems??? from now on if mine is not licensed??

  24. As an IT consultant it’s very annoying to download the .NET 3.5 installation over and over…
    Finally a good solid way to implement the update from a USB Stick…

    Thanks a million (also thanks from my wife, sincei’m home earlier every day ;))


  25. dude.. .net framework 3.5 is not working properly..There is alert to install windows installer 3.1… Plz help me….

    1. @Rakesh Walia
      You may need to update windows installer to version 3.1
      Just Google it. Its free for download on Microsoft’s official site.

      Glad to know that buddy… πŸ™‚

      1. Hey Buddy, I downloaded the .net framework 3.5 and it says i need the new windows installer. However i’m running a pirated copy of windows XP Pro. Will that conflict with my system? Any ideas?

  26. Great job… I was dieing on the re-establishing the connection … Microsoft can’t do anything correctly :angry:
    But this post, just a piece of art.
    Biggup from Estonia:)

  27. Hi Rahul,

    Thanks a lot for the post with full setup file of .net frame. It has always been a pian in Butt to download this file.

    I am now trying to install the 3.5 version and it says it encountered a problem and cannot install. I removed all the previous versions of .net frame manually, cleaned the registry before installing. I am using Windows XP SP3. I tried installing windows installer 3.1 but, it said since i am using the latest service pack its not needed.

    please help me install this.

    Thanks in adavance.

    1. @Purushotham
      What error message did you get?
      Try pasting that error message on “Google”. You will find some help.

  28. Hi Rahul,

    Thanks for the link but when I install the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, it required to connect to internet. May I know what wrongs? I thought this the standalone/full installation….

    Any ideal and please help….

    Thank you.

    1. @Jeffrey
      What is size of file you have downloaded?
      Because once you directly download entire setup file, it will get install without connecting to Internet.

  29. Hi Buddy,
    Thanks a lot for keeping such type of tool. it is very gr8 to have it. THANKS A LOT!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. Hello dear Rahul Bansal thanks for your link about Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 for download my β€Žwindows is Xp professional I need your suggestion which one should I install 200 MB or 50 MB.β€Ž

    1. @Ahmad
      Both are different version. But if you are not sure about your requirements please go for 200MB version. πŸ™‚

  31. HI Rahul,

    I downloaded the 200MB file size but if I disconnected from the internet, it will slowly install. When I check the log file, it trying to install those multiple language pack which I don’t need…….very strange and no ideal what wrong….

    1. @Jeffrey
      If you have Internet then keep it on while running 200MB installer.
      I really don’t remember if my Internet was on or off while running installer.

  32. Thanks a Lot Rahul,
    i am try as many time to direct download Framwork 3.5 but never sucess are doing excellant JOb.

  33. I had to uninstall Net.Framework because the files got corrupted. When I tried to reinstall Net.Framework. I was able to reinstall Net.Framework 1, 2 and 3 However I cannot see Net.Framework 3 and cannot install Net.Framework 3.5 and 3.5 SP1. I continually get error 1935 and 2908. I have run registry cleanup and spyware several times and I am running out of patiences.

  34. Shot for the stuff man. Also had same issue that it kept wanting to reestablish connection. Annoying. Apparently net.framework 4.0 is out. true??? should we try get it or waste of time??

    thanks again. chuz

    1. @Fernando Cancel
      I guess you need Windows XP SP3 to install .NET framework 3.5.

      I am not updated with recent status of .NET framework releases. But if I come across any recent version like 4.0 I will post about it.

  35. I have a Dell Inspiron 9200 with windows XP. I had to much corruption with my OS. I did a new reinstall of my OS. I did not reinstall explorer 8 or Net Framework 3.5 SP1 and everything seem to be working fine. Thanks F Cancel

    1. @Fernando
      Great to know things working for fine at your end. πŸ™‚
      By the way if you are having problem with 3.5 try installing .NET framework 3.0 first! πŸ™‚

  36. Thanks

    Man whats the problem with microsoft setup for net framework. It has become a headache to download. And its inmportant because new nokia pc suite requires net framework 3.0 or greater

  46. I downloaded this 3-4 times and all goes well until the final install.I keep getting an error and all files are then removed.I utilize windows-xp,exployer 8 .I currently have network 1.1 as shown on my contol panel (add/remove list).I’ve given up on this cause I can’t figure out just why it keeps failing to install.

  47. lets say you do have a pirated version and started to download the framework, do you think that person would be okay

  48. So I just rebooted my computer and manually installing all my drivers, and of course…the most important drivers for the internet require .NET Framework which itself requires Internet. What a mess.

    Thanks so much; you don’t know how much this saved me time and also stress from bothering techie friends who don’t want to be bothered =)

  49. Doesn’t work complete at @60 of 71MB of the extra data it fails, and tries to reconnect 5 times. After all reconnect options fail, the installer continues. But is missing
    I’m going to build an administrative installation-point. That can be used for the full setup. I’ll post a link here!

I want to install the Bluebeam PDF Revu software on my laptop, but the installation tries to download .net by itself. The thing is, I live at a university and the ploxy blocks such access.

  100. man why put the link under microsoft don’t you have any online storage like rapidshare, or sumthing??

    ican’t go to microsoft website… T^T

  101. @ >.

    It can be stored on any of the file storage but I don’t think that we need them. We are all easy with Microsoft Servers. Perhaps you need to search over Google or Bing to grab a link from other servers.

  102. hi guys.btw big thanks for this upload.and i need advice …do i need to have more net framework in my pc both ?beaucose i had NF 2 ive download 3.0 and after restart system said “to run ati catalist controller instal 2.0 lol so? what i need to do?at this time i downloading NF3.5 from this site ill post here results.thx 4 help if some1 can help email will helpfull.regards

  103. WOW, this is the only site that I have seen in being sooooo helful Add me to the THANKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  104. I wanted to make sure I have the full version of 3.5 framework on my PC. So I uninstalled the existing version and reinstalled from the website you directed me to.

    Both the old version and the new one are less than 30 MBs in size. I was expecting something near 200 MB for the 3.5 full version.

    Does it make sense that the full version of 3.5 framework takes up less than 30 MB of space?

  116. Thank you Rahul Bansal,
    This was so much easier than Microsoft Download provides. It always takes me a long time negotiating their site, figuring out what is the proper one to download and then it always seems that I have to download more items to complete everything.
    Thanks again.

  120. hi dear friends
    can u tell me plz defination of .net frame why we need it to install on our pc plz as soon as possible reply……

    1. @sanjay: The framework is needed to run certain software on Windows. It is better to have the latest updated framework if you need to run the latest software applications on Windows.

  121. sigh…seeing ol d positive answer above makes me cry…cos i cnt stil install….evrthn works out fine but at d end of d installing it says setup error:(…help me pls

  122. I downloaded the full setup from the given link but it still tries to connect to the internet. When there is an internet connection, the download during the installation process stops when it tries to calculate the transfer rate and won’t continue.
    Hints anyone?

    1. Ok, i found out a workaround: The installer tried to download a german language pack. I don’t know why the download won’t succeed, but I just looked into dd_dotnetfx35install.txt (in my temp directory) where it said that it wants to download from and copy it to Temp\dotnetfx3521022.08\1033\dotnetfx35\x86\dotnetfx35langpack_x86de.exe
      So i downloaded this file by myself and put it where it is expected. After restarting the installer it finds this file and continues to install.

      Only 3 hours wasted -_-

    i have a windows XP copy on my pc, since i bought it 3 years ago in asia.
    I noticed that when i try to download the netframework, i should agree to a microsoft agreement about the licence…before proceeing,
    Does it mean that i cannot download the netframework, and if i do microsoft will block my computer internet connection ?
    Thanks a lot

    Please help

  127. When i am trying to install dotNetFx35setup.exe it say me to install dotNet Framework 4.0 in my windows 8 OS. and when i try to install dotNet Framework 4.0 from .exe it say me to install dotNet Framework 4.0 .

Keep up the great work!

  129. Microsoft really, really sucks…at least customer service does…. It’s pretty bad when the on-line CS rep hangs up on you….and all I did was ask where to get sp3 and net frameworks….I might as well have demanded that they give me a million dollars the way both CS reps acted!
