Sharepoint Designer cannot display this item error after migrating from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013

Here we will discuss how to resolve SharePoint 2013 designer error which comes once you migrate from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013.

The error message ususally comes as: Sharepoint Designer cannot display this item. This error comes if you try to open and modify a workflow.

This error usually comes if you have SharePoint designer 2010 before installing SharePoint designer 2013.

So the solution (not sure correct or not but works for me) is to delete the cache for SharePoint designer. So open the below directory and delete the contents.

C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SharePoint Designer\ProxyAssemblyCache

After this hope the error will not come to you.
