SharePoint Designer : This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.

You have a SharePoint 2010 Claims Authentication ( FBA ) enabled site and you have a Custom SignIn Page created.
Now, if you try to open the site in SharePoint Designer 2010, you will get this error:This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.
Just change the Custom SignIn Page to Default SignIn Page and it will start working.

After making the desired changes in SPD, do not forget to change it back to your Custom SignIn Page!

  3. We ran into this same issue, but we need to keep it at Custom Signin Page. Is there a workaround that allows me to keep Custom SigninPage and work with SPD? Any help would be great. Thanks.

  4. If you add a second zone, you can use the one with the default login page for Designer work, and users can use the one with the custom login page for normal use.
