Unable to open the site on SPD:
Sharepoint designer web server does not appear have Sharepoint foundation installed"
The web server may not have sharepoint server installed
The web server may be temporarily out of service
If you are connecting through a proxy server, the proxy settings may be incorrect
An error may have occurred in the web server
Note, I have ensured the "client integration is enabled".
Infopath is also throwing error:
The following web server does not appear to be running SharePoint
Rebooted the machine
Reinstalled the SPD even though it is a farm level issue
Rebooted the Servers
Added the site into Trusted zone.
Tried to select the edit on SPD from IE

To resolve this problem, make sure the
correct web application has client integration enabled.
To do this, follow these steps:
Start SharePoint 2010 Central Administration, and then click Security.
Click Specify authentication providers.
If the Web application in the Web Application list is not the same application that you want to open in SharePoint Designer 2010, click Web Application on the Change Web Application list.
On the Select Web Application page, click the name of the Web application that you want to open.
Under Zone, Click Default to open the Edit Authentication page.
Under Enable Client Integration, click Yes, and then click Save.

as you mentioned you enable the Client Integration,
Did you close the SPD after that and reopen it, or even try to restart the PC.
Also try to add the site into Trusted zone.
If above fails, try this.....Open SDP(but dont try to open Site)...Now Open Site in IE, once it loaded then try to open in SPD.

I had similar problem, but honestly, I'm not sure what exactly fixed the problem. I guess it was installing of last update for SharePoint. I know this is like repair clocks by hummer, but if there is not any other option =).

When I got this error message, the reason was that the SQL server was down. Make sure the SQL service is running and port 1433 (or whichever you chose) is allowed through the firewall.

I ran into the same issue.
In my case, it turned out that my web.config file wasn't 100% correct. After comparing the file with other web.config files, I located and fixed issue.
After updating the web.config file, SPD and InfoPath were both able to connect to the site.

Try enabling web integration (central admin, web app, Default and select 'enable client integration')
Also as mentioned above. Add the site to your trusted sites, using IE sign-in to the SharePoint site and then open SPD by using Site Settings -> Edit in SharePoint Designer.
Sometimes when my laptop is not member of the network I'm on. I also have to add the url to my Windows 'hosts file'. But this is more a networking / proxy issue rather than SharePoint.
