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.

lol thats why i stay away from microsoft site πŸ˜‰ had to sacrifice their sky drive too πŸ™ now using as online storage …mmmmm but wanted skydrive naaaaaaaaaa!

Rahul Bansal June 24, 2008

In this case you can use download manager to directly download .NET framework.
So I don’t think Windows validation comes into picture.

lyn June 8, 2010


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

humanas July 27, 2008

I dont have an internet connection at home, will this work for me?

Rahul Bansal July 27, 2008

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™‚

Sakayaraj Ratnasingam August 1, 2008

hoosier December 4, 2008

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?

Joni Goodell December 4, 2008

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!

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.

Rahul Bansal April 30, 2009

Try pasting that error message on “Google”. You will find some help.

Hi Rahul,

Any ideal and please help….

Thank you.

Rahul Bansal April 30, 2009

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

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….

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.

Rahul Bansal May 8, 2009

@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.

Hi there, thanks a ton for the way you have neatly put up the links. I have a problem, though, that I was hoping you could help me out with. 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. I hoped to bypass the problem by installing the wwhole thing myself, but the installation of Blubeam still tries to do the download, and never proceeds from there. Could you give some advice?

Jan September 8, 2010


You can get .net framework 4.0 from this link:

If for some reason it keeps on failing while you are trying to install. You should do the following steps.

1. uninstall .net 3.5
2. uninstall .net 3.0
3. uninstall .net 2.0
4. restart computer
5. install .net 3.5 (link found in this site)
6. install 4.0

hope it helps.

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.

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?

Aditya Kane January 13, 2012

@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.

wahyu January 18, 2012

thank… very nice..

Janina February 15, 2012

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?

Janina February 15, 2012

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 -_-

wonder if someone can advice me on this matter,
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

Ssmith5972 September 19, 2012

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i’ve been trying to re-install and update my windows xp for the better part of a week (and that’s just for the net frameworks!) with no luck… just hoping this thing downloads quickly so i can get my system back up and running right again….thanks so much my friend!!!!!! Keep up the great work!

Ssmith5972 September 19, 2012

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!

PARWEZ KHAN September 22, 2012

Aditya Kane October 17, 2012

@AlexRoKilla: All the Links are are working now. The issue might be at Microsoft’s end as the links we are sharing are from Microsoft itself.

Aagam February 27, 2013

Thanks man
but will 3.5 work with 64bit of my w8???

Aditya Kane February 28, 2013

Why would you need .NET 3.5 on 64bit Windows 8? I would recommending getting .NET 4.5 – here is the link to its offline installer.

jonty rhodes April 4, 2013

dude that’s because some apps are only supported by dotnet framework 2.0,3.0 and 3.5 they can’t be run under 4.5 that’s y πŸ™‚

The links are working. They are taken from Microsoft itself, so if its an issue it could be on their side. You might want to try out after a few hours.

Hello, I tried to install .Net Framework 3.5 and it said ‘An app on your PC needs the following Windows feature: .Net Framework 3.5 (Include .Net 2.0 and 3.0)’

Is that mean I have to install .Net 2.0 and 3.0 first? well, I myself am not really sure whether I have .Net 2.0 and 3.0 or not in my laptop but I bought this laptop in the beginning of this year and I never install any of .Net framework before.

Do you could provide me the full link for .Net 2.0 and 3.0? I tried to install the setup from microsoft site it won’t work because my internet connection unresponsive for the further install proccess (But the connection is fine for browsing or streaming, it just didn’t work for install the .Net framework)

Do you have any solution for this?
