    Hi,
    I think the exe file that you are trying to load is not working from your system. You have to try it from some other website. If that does not work to then the feature is probably disabled in your machine. You need to enable this feature from the control panel area of your machine. Keep your Internet connections open while you are downloading .NET software. Just go to the start button and then go to the Control Panel feature. From there you will get an option called program and features. Here you will get to choose the .NET framework version, that you are trying to install under Turn Windows feature on or off option. This time your .NET software version must get downloaded and subsequently installed from the internet.

    might be because of the windows 8 preview it was not allowing you to install the application....
    or might be some dependencies are not correctly installed during the os installation,...
    if you really want to get .net then install os again with all necessary requirements....

    Windows 8 will install such programs. But you have to go into the Add Windows Features and turn on .NET 3.5, download it and install it. You could also in turn install a program that requires .NET 3.5 that will force Windows 8 to download and install it and thus making it easier for you to install programs that require .NET 2.0 to install as well.

    I know this from personal experience as this happened to me. So Windows will do what you suggest it should. It just wont do it for older apps that require .NET 2.0 but will for apps that require the much newer .NET 3.5.
