I have downloaded SharePoint designer 2013 32-bit on my PC. My PC is is a Windows 7 64-bit with MS Office 32-bit.

Now I downloaded the SharePoint Designer from the following link and I chose the 32-bit. Then I installed it and everything went working well.

But as mentioned on the above link that I need to install the SP1 for SharePoint designer (Please make sure your installation of SharePoint Designer is up to date by using Microsoft Update, or installing Service Pack 1 from here). So I download the SP1 from the following link and I chose the 32-bit. But the problem I faced is that when I tried to install the SP1 i got this error:

Can anyone advice on this please? Why can't I apply the SP1 for SharePoint designer?

    I think your system might have an office component which has a higher build version number Commented Aug 30, 2016 at 13:13

    The script will simply bypass the check.. and it will install required files that comes as part of the install.. I saw this command on microsoft blog site.. Commented Aug 30, 2016 at 13:23
