Error 0x80070490

  • In the Home to Pro upgrade process, the script may show the below error in red color:
Exception calling "_DismSet Edition" with "6" argument(s): "Element not found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070490)"
  • This issue often appears due to the installed .Net 3.5 framework.
  • To solve this, we need to disable it, to do that, open the command prompt as admin and enter
    DISM /Online /English /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:"NetFx3"
  • Once it's done, try to change the edition again.
  • After the edition change, you can enable .net 3.5 again, to do that, enter,
    DISM /Online /English /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:"NetFx3"
