...All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain....

- soliloquy from Blade Runner

Bits and bytes do get lost, awash in the rain of data flow that is Internet. They slip away from us, never to found again... some of them will be captured here, many more will not... like tears in rain...

Windows 8 and .NET Framework 3.5

 I had an interesting problem - brand new Windows 8.1 with .NET framework 4.5 installed was not able to connect o windows update to download Framework 3.5. Reason for old framework - SQL Server 2014 requires it.
 After lots of googling, and experimenting, I've finally found option to do silent install, meant for situations where you don't have internet connection, and that worked:

LimitAccess switch is the key to signal Windows to use local dvd (or local ISO in my case) and not connect to internet for that.

DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess /Source:d:\sources\sxs
