Unable to install the .Net Framework 3.5 feature on Windows Server 2012 R2 using the Add Roles and Features Wizard

You might get an error similar to this:

“The source files could not be downloaded” or “The source files could not be found”

Followed by:

Use the “source” option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information…

I was able to install .Net Framework 3.5 by specifying an alternate source path before clicking Install while adding the feature. I used the Windows Server installation disc, in my case D:\Sources\SXS\
