I happen to be out of town (away from my purchased software disks) and my program won't open. The error message says it needs the designer.xml file. Is that a file I can get and upload to correct this.
Thanks for any help you all can assist me with,
Is this by chance a parsing error on the file? If so it means your custom layout in DW has become corrupted, but if you delete the user config folder and just use the default layouts you will be fine. https://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/kb/re-create-dreamweaver-user-configuration.html
If that is the not the error, please post the exact error you are receiving and OS and we can try to help you troubleshoot further.

Your Workspace is corrupted, that's all. It's no great tragedy. Simply select or create a new Workspace.
I don't see workspace anywhere on my screends. I have Windows 10 Home. is that the issue? And I have found Task View and started a new screen but no luck getting it to open.
when I get home will I be able to reload Dreamweaver from the disk.
The options should be under Window > Workspace Layout...
The name in the top of the application window that Nancy shows as "MyWorkspace" will change depending on what you have selected in the Workspace Layout menu..
But I can't even open DW. I'll check if I can do that in another program and then open Dreamweaver.
I think I will have to reload the program when I get home. Should I uninstall it first and then load it from the disc's I have?
What program is a replacement for Dreamweaver if I choose to update and get a new one. And where is the place to get it at the lostest cost.?
CC 2021 is the latest release version. DW is not receiving any new features. It is only minimally maintained now.
CC All Apps Plan is a bundle of 51 apps & services for mobile & desktop
Single Apps cost approx $21/month for a 12 month subscription. Or $31 for month-to-month lease.

If I reload DW do I have to uninstall first?
Before uninstall/reinstall, try restoring preferences.
Turn on your operating system's hidden files, then follow the instructions here: https://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/kb/restore-preferences-dreamweaver.html
That may take care of it without needing your original disks. If that doesn't work, uninstall using the Cleaner Tool and reinstall from your original disks...
