NetFx3 on Windows Server 2012 R2 - SQL Server 2012

Today, in process to installation of Skype for Business, when deploying back end server SQL Server 2012 on Windows Server 2012 R2, received error "NetFx3, Error Code : -2146498298, Please try enabling Windows feature : NetFx3 from Windows management tools and then run setup again, For more information on how to enable Windows features features"


on Windows Server 2012 R2, .NET Framework 3.5 feature is not installed because it already have the .NET framework 4.5 installed as the default platform. If we want to have then we have to install manually on server.

First open the server manager tool of Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2, click on the Manage and go to Add Roles and Features"

and here .Net Framework 3.5 installed successfully.

once .NET Framework 3.5 installed successfully try on SQl to continue to installation and set will run smoothly.
