I have followed this article to activate Performance Point Services in Central administration. I have activated all the features of Performance Point Service in SiteCollection level as well as Web level..

Now when I open Dashboard designer,I am getting an error - mentioned below :

An error has occured attempting to contact the specified sharepoint site. please check your connection and setting and try again

My web-application is Claims based authentication(fba) but it is working in classic mode Authentication(Window).

My doubt: is it possible to make Performance Point Services work in FBA?

Do you have multiple AuthN providers on your Web Application? If so, you need to extend your web app to a new zone and only have Windows AuthN on that one.
