I would like to be able to do SharePoint development on a local host, but get the following error when starting a SharePoint project:

SharePoint Not Installed

The required version of SharePoint Foundation 2013 or SharePoint Server 2013 is not installed on this system. TO develop SharePoint solutions or browse SharePoint connections in Server Explorer, SharePoint must be installed on the local system.  Make sure that the local server referenced by the SharePoint project exists.

Is there a fix to be able to set up a development environment off the actual server?
