i get this error
I resolved it. The missing link was that I had installed the 64 bit version of SPD 2013. It must be the 32 bit too. It's a bit hard to find on the website but, once I uninstalled the 64 bit and installed the 32 bit, all is working fine.
Thanks for the tip of looking at the 'bit version' of Office and IE. That got me to thinking outside the box to verify that others, in the same vein, were the same or not.
