Installing .net 3.5 on Server 2012 - error '“Do you want to specify an alternate source path? One or more installation selections are missing source files…”

I was installing DirSync on a Server 2012 server (in the process of doing a staged migration to Office365 from an SBS 2008 machine) and DirSync required .net 3.5.  It should be easy, but when using Server Manager to install the feature, I got this error:

Do you want to specify an alternate source path? One or more installation selections are missing source files…

I followed these excellent instructions to install it:

In my case, I downloaded the ISO file and unzipped just the sources folder and modified the path.
