The Designer install, though, should do the NICI part for you. If you do not do this, though, then comms with eDir will not work since NICI provides the security foundation for that, among other things.
-- Good luck.

!!!Thanks!!! This was the apparent issue. After I manually installed NICI, I was able to connect to the eDir tree normally.
It appears that the path I was installing from was too long and NICI failed to install so I was unable to connect. I never received this error message, but from the readme for Designer 4.02:
"3.6 NICI Fails to Install on Windows during Designer Installation
If you get the following error message during the installation of Designer, one of the reasons could be that the path of the Designer executable is too long. In spite of the error message, Designer installation completes successfully, but NICI fails to install."
--and this is a similar issue if NICI isn't installed, as in my situation:
"3.4 Establishing Communication with eDirectory within Designer 4.0.2 Causes an Error on Windows 7
This issue occurs because a previous version of NICI might not have uninstalled properly and might have some residual files left on the file system.
To work around the issue, remove all the NICI files from the system and reinstall Designer and the Novell Client."
