    No transaction information is available.

 

This is likely caused by your machine not being joined to the domain and credentials not being passed correctly.  Assuming you are running Windows 7, you can open control panel and use Credential Manager to add the proper Windows credentials.

Click on the link “Add a Windows credential.”   Enter your site name and your credentials.

Now it’s in the list and stored.

…and Dashboard Designer should now launch.

You might be able to get the same result by putting the site in your trusted site list and insuring that automatic logon is selected in IE.
