I had created list workflows with SharePoint 2013 templates almost 2 years before from today in client's SharePoint Online tenant using SharePoint designer.
Recently, when I have tried to edit this workflow using SharePoint 2013 designer, it gives below errors:
For the first time, when you try to click on workflow it shows:
server side activities have been updated you need to restart sharepoint designer
After traversing back to workflows folder, and click on workflow it shows:
windows workflow foundation part of .net framework 3.0 must be installed to use this feature
Then it shows error:
I am using SharePoint designer 2013 with 64 bit. I already have installed/updated designer with below installations:
- SP Designer SP1
Also tried solutions provided in below URLs, but none of them work:
- Problem when opening SharePoint Online workflows in SharePoint Designer 2013
- error: server side activities have been updated you need to restart sharepoint designer
Strangely, when I tried to create a new workflow on same list, it works properly but for older workflows, it's not working.
I have checked same in development and production sites and in both sites, we are getting this issue. Even I have tried SharePoint designers on different machines but the error is same.
Please let me know if there is any solution to resolve this.
