On my Office 365/SharePoint Online tenant, I’m trying to create a Workflow with SharePoint Designer 2013. This has worked before, but today I get a strange error:
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
Searching for the error I get a suggestion to remove the SharePoint Designer node of
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office – but after a restart it still doesn’t work. To add further info, which may or may not be relevant I have several Microsoft Office Professional Plus Updates that cannot be installed, and the suggestion is to remove the entire Office installation and start over. I’m reluctant to do so, before I know It’ll solve the problem.
What causes the error, and how can I open my SharePoint Online tenant (E3 license) using SharePoint Designer?
