In this post we will discuss how we can resolve one SharePoint designer issue in SharePoint 2013. The error comes when we try to edit a workflow in SharePoint 2013 designer. The workflows were migrated from moss 2007 to SharePoint 2013 using database upgrade approach. Those workflows were in 2010 platform.

When I try to edit or view the workflow it was giving the below error:
SharePoint designer cannot display the item.
We tried opening the same workflow in some other system and it opened correctly.
Then we clear designer cache and it worked for us. Before doing this make sure to close sharepoint 2013 designer.
Delete everything but below folders:
C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SharePoint Designer\ProxyAssemblyCache
Now Restart the designer and try to open the workflow. It should work fine.
Hope it will be helpful.
