Server Validation failure issue in HTML Editor

So Why do I get a WA_js alert whe I try to validate my form through spry

Originally Said By: Jason Byrnes
  Using Server Validation from CSS Form builder or Form Toolkit on an HTML Editor instance, when validation fails, the HTMLEditor content will be encoded.

to fix the issue, edit the webassist/form_validation/wavt_validatedform_php.php file. change:
return str_replace("<","&lt;",str_replace(">","&gt;",str_replace('"',"&quot;",$retVal)));

return htmlspecialchars($retVal);

Hi I created a large form for a client and bound it to a mysql database in CS3 & Windows 8. My software was freezing when I tried to validate the form. So I purchased CS6, Data Bridge, and now hen I try to validate the form from CS6 I get the following alert.

While exectuting onLoad in spryValidation Textfield.htm, the following JavaScript error(s) occured
At line 132 of file C:\Configuration\Shared\Spry\DesignTime\EditingUtils.js:WA_getDocumentDOM is not defined

I am assuming that WA stands for Web Assist so there seems to be a conflict between DW Spry and Data Bridge configuration. How can I fix this

As stated I am using Windows 8, in DW CS6 (but the form was originally set up and bound in CS3) and Databridge. I know that there is no issue CS3 since when I make a new form in CS6 I get the same alert. But when I use the formbuild presets in Data Bridge the Spry validation works. This form is large, and so is the DB. I don't really want to start the form process again and besides the conflict needs to be resolved. Please can someone advise

PS I get the same alert after I disabled Data Bridge
