Unable to deploy Crystal Reports 2013 SP4 silently

I'm trying to deploy it over here. I got the response file created. But the issue is that Crystal Reports setup tries to switch on the .net Framework 3.5 Feature on the target server. Our target servers are Windows 2012 machines and they already got .net Framework 4.5 in them..

So even if i try for a silent installation, there's an error message towards the end of the installation that it failed to turn on the .net framework 3.5 feature on the machine.

I got the command for it. But there's an error message towards the end that I'm unable to suppress.

the command I'm using is "setup.exe -r response.ini -q"

I tried to search for some installation or deployment guide online but in vain

The exact error message is as follows:

The following Feature couldn't be installed:

.Net Framework 3.5(includes .net 2.0 and 3.0)

Windows Server roles and features cannot be automatically installed or uninstalled via the Windows Features Control Panel

To install windows Server roles and features, start Server Manager or use the Server Manager cmdlets.

Please help.
