I had also same problem.

Open your site in Internet Explorer and then click on "Dashboard Designer". It will open.
NOTE: Try on machine where you SharePoint server is installed.

  • I did that But Now I am getting authentication error.Please see my updated Question. – Naseer Jun 24 '16 at 11:04
  • May be Windows/IE is not remembering your credentials to pass them to the application. So you need to check the “Save password” or “Remember my Credentials” in browser. This may help you. – SP Developer Jun 24 '16 at 11:12

My first instinct whenever I see that type of error is that you don't have the site set as trusted. Adding the site to the 'Intranet' zone will allow for automatic logins, and usually handle client applications like Dashboard designer also.
