Hi, I find the image from cloudbase is not having a built in .net and I am unable to install either. I have tried to install as a feature mounting the .iso image, offline using command line, tried installing as a stand alone but none was successful. Can you let me know how to install .net on the windows VM provisioned from your Image.

Regards, Nagesh

You can mount the ISO files or copy the content of the SXS folder to the VM and run the below DISM command by running cmd as administrator.

dism /online /enable-feature /all /featurename:NetFX3 /source:<path>\sxs

what version of .NET are you referring to? You can install the .NET 3.5 framework by enabling the NET-Framework-Core feature:

Install-WindowsFeature NET-Framework-Core

You can install the .NET 4.5 framework by enabling the NET-Framework-Core feature:

Install-WindowsFeature NET-Framework-45-Core

Thank you.

Hi Avladu, These vm's don't have internet connectivity to install offline. I tried the above too but wasn't able to install Versions 3.5 or 4.5. Can you let me know if you have installed this on cloudbase it qcow2 image without internet? Regards, Nagesh

AFAIK, the 4.5 version cannot be installed without connectivity. You can apply 3.5 as an offline feature. Here is an example on how to do it with dism, after you have mounted the image vhd:

Has cloudbase released any new Windows Qcow2 format images off late?

Better to install the feature using windows add features and then sysprep and take it as an image.
