When I click on the "download" button for the Assets File, either by attempting to open it or save the target file, an error message reads "We're Sorry. We cant open start_dreamweaver_first-website because we found a problem with its contents. Microsoft Office cannot open this file because some parts are missing or invalid." How can I get around this to download the assets file to follow along with the tutorial?
I'm not sure what the problem is, but I see you have obtained the files from the written version of the tutorial. Usually, if there's a problem downloading files, it's a good idea to try a different browser. The files download fine for me in Chrome on Windows 7.
