I have windows 7 PC , and I have download SharePoint designer 32-bit from the Microsoft site link. then I download the SP1 for it from this link.

Now I wanted to check the current version for the SharePoint designer,,, but I got these conflict versions :-

  • From control panel, the version number is 15.0.4569.1506

enter image description here

  • while if i open SPD >> File >>Account >> About SPD i will get this version number 15.0.4615.1000

enter image description here

so why I am getting conflict versions? and which one is the most accurate ?


It's normal , I also have the same behavior , it's not a conflict. and the most accurate as you said,that mentioned at SharePoint Designer. but in fact, no one accurate than other each one represents specific information as I mentioned below.


Regarding the version number at control panel is represented the default build number of product installation , and to ensure that check my installation version number that is identical to your version. because it's the same product.

  • Control Panel Version

Regarding the version number at SharePoint Designer is the build number of SharePoint Designer latest update. if you applied update as Service Pack it will be reflected at SharePoint designer not at control panel

  • SharePoint Designer Version

  • but i think it is a conflict as many users might find the version inside control panel and assume it is the accurate one ... – john Gu Sep 1 '16 at 12:08
