I expect Dreamweaver runs it's HTML in the same way any browser would if it was loaded directly.

However to run PHPBB (or in fact any PHP) you need a web server running with PHP and MySQL installed and running as well.

This is too hard to set-up (although it is not an absolute walk in the park), find and download WAMP (for Windows) or LAMP (for Linux) to get Apache, MySQL and PHP for the relevent platforms, then you will be able to run and develop phpBB at home.
