Install .Net 2.0 on Server 2016

KB ID 0001506


.Net2, man thats old! Well I was setting up PowerCLI for VMware today and was faced with this;

net 2 on server 2016

.Net Framework 2.0 is not installed on this machine. Please download and install .Net Framework 2.0 before installing VMware PowerCLI.


Pop in the Server 2016 DVD, (or present the ISO if it’s a VM.) Then execute the following commands, (Note: It’s installed with .Net 3);

dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3ServerFeatures /Source:D:\sources\sxs
dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /Source:D:\sources\sxs

nstall net2.0 Server 2016

Note: This assumes your CD/DVD Drive letter is D.
