Tutorial For Upgrading PowerCMS with the new HTML Editor

Now I am annoyed enough to drop this project

I know I am not that dense! I have done this mod 6 times! I followed the instructions for the contents_insert.php page and it is NOT working! I don't know if I am missing something. When I originally did this project, I did the whole thing and the content_update.php section did work! Just not the first page - the content_insert page.
On the final version (this one) I moved the HTMLEditor folder from the site root to a folder under the CMS folder, corrected the path in the source from "/HTMLEditor/" to "../HTMLEditor/" and it STILL did not work.

I don't know if the problem is PATH or what - the one question that NO ONE answer was "Is the HTML editor folder in the same folder as the CMS?" I installed the CMS in its own folder, according to the case study (link posted earlier in this post) which is named "CMS" Attaching the content_insert page - but didn't see it when I saved this post, so I am pasting the 2 sections of code that I needed to change below

The "require once" section
<?php require_once( "../WA_Globals/WA_Globals.php" ); ?>
<?php require_once('../Connections/localhost.php'); ?>
<?php require_once( "../WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php" ); ?>
<?php require_once("../WA_DataAssist/WA_AppBuilder_PHP.php"); ?>
<?php require_once("../HTMLEditor/WARichEditorPHP.php"); ?>
<?php require_once( "../WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" ); ?>

The Editor instance itself
// WebAssist iRite: Rich Text Editor for Dreamweaver
$WARichTextEditor_2 = CreateRichTextEditor ("ValueContent", "../HTMLEditor/", "713px", "400px", "Default", "../custom/contents_insert_ValueContent1.js", (isset($_POST['ContentValue']) ? $_POST['ContentValue'] : "");
