Windows 8 does not include .NET 3.5 (include .NET 2.0 and 3.0) by default. But if the user is upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8, .NET Framework 3.5 is fully enabled. The user can make sure this feature is enabled by check in Program and Features.
Lets get started;
The user still can enable this feature in offline mode if the user has Windows 8 DVD or ISO image.
