I have installed Windows 8 few days back. And during some initial programs setup I noticed that Windows 8 does not include .NET 3.5 (include .NET 2.0 and 3.0) by default. However it did contained the setup in the OS disc.
So question is, How to install the .NET framework 3.5 including .NET 2.0 and 3.0 ?
