That's it. I should have started with an install in C: instead of on a memory stick.  But next 
week, I'll try MAXOS.  As for the Siteground version, I'll try the suggestions I've received here.

Toolkits is the old one

We renamed it to xertetoolkits in the new one (mostly because of branding and because 
toolkits might be in use already).

By the looks of it you've installed the XAMPP version but on an odd path?

If you use the xampp version it will set up fixed paths in the database - one of those will be 

Look in the site details table - it should be root file path

If you're now running xerte on something other than c:\xampp\htdocs\xertetoolkits then 
change the root file path to the new setting?

Subject: [Xerte] Xampp install woes

I have installed Xampp on a memory stick and installed Xerte Toolkits in the htdocs folder.
BTW, some docs say to install in "htdocs/toolkits" but my installation looks for
"htdocs/xertetoolkits" so I am confused. I renamed to xertetoolkits.

I now see the interface. I can create folders. But when I try to create a project, I get this:

Warning: require(C:\xampp\htdocs\xertetoolkits\modules/xerte/edit.php) [function.require]:
failed to open stream: No such file or directory in M:\Xampp\htdocs\xertetoolkits\edit.php on
line 180

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required
'C:\xampp\htdocs\xertetoolkits\modules/xerte/edit.php' (include_path='.;M:\Xampp\php\pear\')
in M:\Xampp\htdocs\xertetoolkits\edit.php on line 180

And also the 30 second demo link doesn't work.
