Q: How do I enable .NET Framework 3.5.1 on my Windows server core installations?

A: The easiest way to enable features or roles on a server core installation (which has no graphical interface) is via the DISM /online command. To enable .NET Framework 3.5.1, use this command:

DISM /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3-ServerCore-WOW64
