Can't create a new website in Sharepoint 2013 in Windows 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just successfully installed SharePoint Designer 2013 on my new Windows 8 pro but when I went to use it to create a new website It asked me to select a location where it auto gave me an option of


    I said OK but it returned with an error "The website must be created on a server that is running Microsoft SharePoint Foundation".

    Now, I tried to install SharePoint Foundation but apparently it can only be done on Winows Servers. Right?

    Because it didn't install on Windows 8 at all when I tried.

    I also tried to change the directory within the windows for SharePoint Designer 2013 but didn't work.

    What else can I do to make it work so I can start creating some sample websites within my computer?

    Please assist.
