Problem: “Your server may be of higher version than the currently installed SharePoint Designer”
I recently faced a problem, where I was prompted to login again & again in the SharePoint claims website. I was working in a farm environment with 1 WFE, 1 application server & 1 DB server.
When I open SharePoint designer & try to connect to the website. I was authenticated but again redirected to login page & continuously it happens. SharePoint Designer 2010 gives an error message somewhat like “Your server may be of higher version than the currently installed SharePoint Designer”.
