SharePoint Designer 2013 Download Bug

Microsoft is generous enough to allow us IT Pros free use of SharePoint Designer. Unfortunately, if you navigate to their free download on their site and click the DOWNLOAD button you will be getting a old version that does not include Service Pack 1.  In small print it gives you a link to update by installing Service Pack 1 (See screen shot below). DO IT! There is a bug where without Service Pack 1 and you may not be able to view any of the stages of a SharePoint 2013 workflow unless you were the creator. I just spent an entire day trying to figure out how a workflow with seemingly NO STAGES was populating a field on a list. Don’t make my mistake, download Service Pack 1!
