Solution :

For some, capricious reason, when you first login to your https://webserver/sites/webApp/Pages/Default.aspx URL, you need to check the “Save password” or “Remember my Credentials”

Then, you’ll be able to launch the dashboard.

It looks like Windows/ IE gets all confused about the fact that you already authenticated to /sites/WebApp AND has no clue who you are when you try to download the designer located under the WebServer/_layouts/ppsma/1033/designer.application folder.
