Have you tried downloading the latest version from
http://www.microsoft.com/net/downloads

If so,

Is it giving you an error code when you try to install it?

Found this from someone who had the same issue.

Open Windows Command Prompt as Admin.

Copy and paste this command into CMD Prompt

  1. for /F %D in ('dir %WINDIR%\assembly %WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\assembly /s /b /a:d') do takeown /F %D && icacls %D /reset /T
  1.  


Then run the standalone installer again.

Ok heres another

Open CMD prompt ( Start > Run > Type CMD > Enter )

Type in command: net stop WuAuServ (Disables Windows Update)

Go to Start Menu > Run > Type %Windir%

Find the Folder "SoftwareDistribution" and rename it to "SDold"

After that go back to CMD prompt

Type in command: net start WuAuServ

Download and install the .net framework from here

Ok, so what we can try to do is disable/enable windows update from Services.msc

Start > Run > Services.msc > Right click Windows update > Disable > Apply

Go to Start Menu > Run > Type %Windir%

Find the Folder "SoftwareDistribution" and rename it to "SDold"

Back to Start > Run > Services.msc > Right click Windows update > Automatic (Delayed Start) > Apply

Then redownload from the same link i posted
