Windows Features

In the image above, you can see that a program you are trying to install requires this package. There are two options here;

The first option has the Install this button. If you want to connect to the Internet and install the package, you can continue with this option. However, the Windows Update service must be running. You can check if the Windows Update service is active by typing services.msc in the Run window and checking the Windows Update option in the Services window that opens.

The second option is to skip installation by clicking Skip This Installation.

If the Windows operating system on your computer is original, we recommend that you continue with the first option. If you have shut down your operating system’s Windows Update service, you will have to add this package to your system without the Internet.

You can also install the NET Framework offline to maintain the limit of your Internet quota, even if you are using a genuine Windows operating system.
