"IE cannot display the webpage" when I try to open SharePoint Designer 2010

This is a virtual lab environement under Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V. The virtual machines are Windows Server 2008 R2; I've got SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise Edition and SQL Server 2008 R2 on one machine; Active Directory with Exchange on another, and a Windows 7. Everything works as it should, including SharePoint. However.

When I click "Edit in SharePoint Designer" under Site Actions, there's a few seconds of "Loading..." and then I get the following (in a "pop up web page"): Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.

It does not matter which user (lever or privileges) I use, or on which machine (client, server) I try, it is the same.

I've googled this, but have not found anyone else with this problem. On the other hand, you get a lot of "false positives" with the keywords involved.

Any help much appreciated.

try open SharePoint designer first and in the open site dialog, place your URL and open it.

Thank you for your reply; I'm not quite following you, though. How do I open SharePoint Designer without clicking "Site Actions" -> "Edit in SharePoint Designer"?

If you have installed SharePoint designer, then it should be available at

Start -> Programs -> Microsoft Office ->Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer <version>

You will not be able to edit with SharePoint Designer if it's not installed.

I was under the impression that SharePoint Designer 2010 was integrated with SharePoint 2010 and not released as a separate product...?

Thank you very much, I'll try this.

I will let the question remain open for a while, if somebody has a solution to the specific problem I'm describing, while trying your workaround meanwhile.
