This question already has an answer here:
I have two sharepoint farms; Live & Test. both have the following software specification.
- sharepoint enterprise server 2013, with SP1.
- installed inside windows server 2008 R2.
now when i build our Live & Test servers , i have install sharepoint designer 2013.but lately i have read many articles which mentioned that it is recommended not to install any office or other application other than sharepoint inside sharepoint servers. so now i am planning to un-install sharepoint designer .. now on our Test server, i followed these steps:-
- Control Panel.
- Uninstall a program.
- select sharepoint designer 2013.
- click on remove.
and the SP designer got uninstalled correctly.but before doing the same steps on on live server can any one advice on this point, if un-installing SPD can cause any harm to sharepoint serivces:-
Since both SharePoint service 2013 & SharePoint Designer 2013 are within the office suite,, so they might share some patches , updates and .dll files.. so my concern if i un-install sharepoint designer inside the sharepoint server could this remove .dll or patches which is related to sharepoint ? or un-installing sharepoint designer will not affect sharepoint and will not conflict with the .dlls , patches related to sharepoint??
