I am getting this error message when I try to use Share Point Designer with Office Live Business Application private site. I just updated to the most recent version of SharePoint Designer but I could not get any resolution. Please help me to fix this issue ASAP. Any assistance would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
Server error: The version of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation running on the server is more recent than the version of SharePoint Designer you are using.
You need a more recent version of SharePoint Designer.
Failed to start Share Point Designer with Office Live Business Application
It seems that the error is more of a compatibility issue than just an ordinary program error. There is a conflict between the version of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation running on the server you want to access and the version of Microsoft SharePoint Designer you are using to access the server.
The server doesn’t accept your request to access because you are running on an unsupported version. To probably fix your problem, you need to upgrade your Microsoft SharePoint Designer to a much higher version or it would be best if you’ll upgrade to the latest version. You can download Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2013 to finally solve your issue.
This recent version works with Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Make sure also to install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 and later. To download the latest version of Microsoft .NET Framework, visit Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1. In case you want to install the older version 4.0, you will also find it there.
