Windows 8 “Run as different user” isn’t enabled by default for the start page. Here’s how to enable it:

Local Computer Policy > User configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Taskbar.
Show “Run as different user” command on Start

Ironically, I discovered this while trying to open Group Policy Manager, which is what you use to enable the policies like this one in a domain

I assume this would apply also to Server 2012

For some reason Microsoft appears to have messed up the install media manifests or something because the components required to install DotNet 3.5 are copied to the local disk so you can add them as a feature post-install. I don’t know if there are other features that have this problem, but I haven’t come across them yet if there are.

So, to install DotNet 3.5 is actually pretty easy. You will need your Install DVD, or an ISO, or a copy of the files from the DVD somewhere.
