I use IIS 6 with windows7

I installed Sharepoint Designer 2007. http://localhost is functioning allright.

Now my problem:

When in SharePoint Designer I try to open http://localhost I get the error message that the folder name is not valid. Same error when I use the local IP number in stead of localhost. How solve this problem?

  • What is the version of the SharePoint environment you have set up? Is this SharePoint environment running locally on your computer? – TempaC Oct 31 '14 at 12:35
  • Check that you can open the target site with Internet Explorer. If IE can't open the site then neither can SPD and it will throw the folder name error. – Underverse Sep 12 '17 at 4:55
