I am using a new dedicated server running windows server 2008 / IIS.
In the Server Manager listings, it says that .net 3.0 is installed.
I have tried to run setup for .net 3.5. When I use 3.5 setup I get a undeclared "setup error" and setup stops. When I run 3.5 sp1 I get the repair/uninstall options. I ran repair as it is the only one that will run, but Server Manager still says 3.0 installed.
installing .net 3.5 on windows server 2008

hmm .net 3.0 and .net 3.5 are separate programs so even when w2008 says .net 3 is installed it does not mean anything about .net 3.5
try running the original 3.5 installation, select uninstall, then try again, alternatively go search the web for a asp.net instance cleaner, run it then try again

thanks for you help.
I did as you advised, ran the 3.5 unistall, rebooted, installed .net 3.5 successfully, rebooted, installed .net 3.5 sp1 successfully.
Now looking in Server Manager > Features Summary
it still says asp.net 3.0 installed.
I clicked Features Summary > Add Features and first on the list is a check box that says
".NET Framework 3.0 Features: Installed"
Now that it seems .net 3.5 was successfully installed on the machine, why can't I add it to my features?

oh if you mean seeing asp.net 3.5 installed inside w2k8 features, you will never see it there, but rest assured that it is working correctly
it will show only if you are using w2k8 r2

I have the same issues then. .NET 3.5 is an installed program, but not available as a feature. When I try to install SQL Server 2008, it fails with a message that .NET 3.5 installation failed. Suggestions?
