I have a Server 2016 Essentials that I have been trying to install .Net 3.5 on to run SQL 2008 for older applications.  I specify an alternate path, but still get error 0x80073701.  I have tried installing thru DISM and thru Power shell, both give errors.


I ran sfc /scannow and it reports corruption that it could not repair.  What are my options to repair the corrupt files?  I have attached the CBS and DISM logs.


This is a new machine, just purchased in Dec 2017.


Thanks for any advise.

You will need to obtain clean copies of the corrupted files and manually repair them.
