FIXED – The version of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation running on the server is more recent than…

While working with SharePoint Designer and opening sites in Office 365 I came across the below cryptic error message.   The root cause is lack of permission.  Granting SCA fixed.




After opening URL SharePoint Designer client displays “The version of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation running on the server is more recent than the version of SharePoint you are using. You need a more recent version of SharePoint Designer.”



While unclear, the above is actually a permission denied error.   Grant the user account more permissions, such as Site Collection Admin (SCA), and you will connect OK.

What’s in that patch? Aug 2017

NOTE – PDF format updated to include both SharePoint 2013 and 2016 notes.

Ever wondered what fixes are inside of a given CU?   Please see attached PDF with full detail. I wanted a new format for easy reading.   Show management and make the business case for why downtime should be taken to apply CUs.  Also posted at

FIXED – SharePoint Online missing Quick Edit

While troubleshooting OneDrive I noticed an end user missing the “Quick edit” toolbar button.  The fix was to update Document Library view to display  a custom column so that we have data which can be edited.  The default view with only system read-only columns does not support “Quick edit.”




  • Document Library (View) > Modify View > Add a custom column > OK
  • Refresh view to see Quick Edit on Toolbar
