.NET 3.0 and 3.5 in Windows Server 2008 R2 Server Core

Much like .NET 2.0 in Server Core, .NET 3.0 and 3.5 are also subsets of functionality. Included are:

· Windows Communication Framework (WCF)

· Windows Workflow Framework (WF)


The only functionality not included is the Windows Presentation Framework (WPF).

.NET 3.0 and 3.5 functionality is installed with a single package:

· Start /w ocsetup NetFx3-ServerCore

If 32bit support is needed you first need to install WoW64 and then .NET 2.0 WoW64 support, the following assume the above command has already been run:

· Start /w ocsetup ServerCore-WOW64

· Start /w ocsetup NetFx3-ServerCore-WOW64
