When I tried to open the web application in SharePoint Designer 2013 32 bit, I got the below error message and it keeps asking me username and password. How can I open a web application in spd2013?

The description for Event ID 0 from source MSOIDSVC.EXE cannot be found.

Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted.

You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

InitializeSvcAPI failed with hr = 0x80048883

  • Try to disable Microsoft Online Services Sign In Assistant (MSOIDSVC.EXE) by running Service.msc > search about it> Stope or disable it from its properties.

  • It's also recommended to use SharePoint Designer 2013 64 bit rather than 32 bit if your machine is 64 bit as mentioned here
