Using a virtual machine (Oracle VirtualBox with Windows 7 and Sharepoint Server 2010), when I create a new
site-collection in SCA, I can't open it with Sharepoint Designer.
When I try, it says:
Microsoft Sharepoint Designer does not support editing non-Sharepoint sites.
Now, that's a bit strange to me! I can navigate to the "sharepoint site" just fine in Firefox and IE!
I can confirm that the Sharepoint Designer Settings for the site collection are all set to allow the use of SPD. And I am admin everywhere.
The "Home" site is called
http://myserver and the new site collection is at
/sites/ is the managed url path that came default with Sharepoint.
