An error installing Microsoft SQL Server 2008 about .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

Hi, if you are facing an error regarding .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 needs to be installed please follow below; I think the problem is about .NET Framework pre-requirement files have some problem. Copy your SQL setup media to your local hard disk. 1. Download .NetFramework 3.5 SP1 (which corresponds to your architecture - x86, x64 or i64) 2. Do not try to install it by double clicking it, rather extract it first to a location of your choice by issuing this command .exe /x:c:\dotNetFramework35SP1\ for example dotNetFx35Setup.exe /x:c:\dotNetFramework35SP1\ (whatever the name is just use it) 3. Open the folder where you extracted the files. You will find a folder named "wcu" open this folder as well. You will find a folder named "dotNetFramework". 4. Copy everything inside this folder. 5. go to SQL2008 setup folder > FOR EXAMPLE x86, x64 > redist > dotNetFrameworks 6. Paste your files there (replace if prompted). good luck...
