For that you have to make some changes in your PC setting. Windows 8 App Store does not use your Internet or Explorer Internet Setting.

Installing the .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 8 (Offline)

I recently upgraded my system and now I am working with Windows 8. Some days before I faced a problem so I am trying to share it with you. I was trying to run some application, which required .NET 3.5 Framework. I was unable to run that one. Finally I got the solution. Please check it.

We have to install/enable .NET 3.5 Framework in our system. Its very simple just follow the steps.
1. Run your ‘Command Prompt’ and run as ‘Administrator’.
2. Copy and paste this code.
dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:G:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

Here ‘G’ is the drive address. It can be your “Windows 8 Developer Preview DVD” or “Pen drive” which contains the setup. Just put the address of that drive. It may be I,H,G etc.
Or if you have an ISO file of the windows setup, right click on the iso file and ‘Mount’.
A new drive (in my case) ‘K’ will automatically be formed. Replace ‘G’ with ‘K’ (new address).
