As the message you received indicates, ArcFM 10.2.1b works with the ArcGIS 10.2.1 platform only. ArcGIS 10.2.2 or higher is not supported by ArcFM.
Also, you may have seen announcements recently explaining that ESRI's ArcGIS for Desktop 10.2.1 version is dedicated specifically to address the needs of Utility and Telecommunications clients. ESRI has indicated that they will develop no new functionality for Utilities and Telecoms on ArcGIS for Desktop versions beyond 10.2.1 (i.e., until Next Generation) and customers should upgrade to ArcGIS for Desktop 10.2.1 and remain there until the next generation solution is available.
Schneider Electric will mirror ESRI's policy as closely as possible. We will build performance and stability enhancements as well as new functionality to be compatible with ArcGIS for Desktop 10.2.1. Our clients are strongly encouraged to begin migrating to ArcGIS for Desktop 10.2.1 and remain there until it is appropriate for them to upgrade to the ArcGIS next generation solution. We will continue to add value to ArcGIS for Desktop 10.2.1 with future ArcFM Solution releases.

I have a similar issue with ArcFM Object Reader 10.2.1b being installed on a desktop with ArcGIS 10.2.2. I logged a case for it. I'm not sure what exact product Abel is using. According to the following url, Object Reader 10.2.1b is supposed to be compatible ArcGIS 10.2.2:
To access your database and be able to "see" ArcFM data you need Object Readers, since ArcFM Desktop cannot be installed on versions bigger than 10.2.1. Object readers does not provide access to Stored Displays and such, you will need mxds saved from a 10.2.1 ArcFM ArcMap.
We usually just install ArcFM Object Readers 10.2.1c that are compatible with all the releases so we don't have to bother checking a, b or c.
The full compatibility matrix can be found here:
Remember to install the appropriate version (32 bit for ArcMap and 64 bit for Server) and if both are on the same machine you'll have to install them in the correct order, otherwise you will have an install error (I am never able to remember the exact sequence, in case of an error just uninstall the object readers and reverse the order)
Thankfully, the Object Readers uninstall/install quickly. Imagine having to uninstall ArcMap or ArcServer to redo something!
Did you get your question answered ok? If so please mark the question as answered. Thanks!
