Rename folder rerouting paths

I've installed PowerGallery before, many times. But I'm stuck on this one. The paths to the files is retaining the "rename_this_folder" path instead of the renamed folder. I've tried a couple of ways. I put the downloaded folder into DW. Renamed the "rename me" folder, then moved it from the downloaded folder to root. No luck. Then I tried moving the "rename me" folder to root, then renamed, etc... still no effect on all linked files. Any ideas, so much appreciated!

src="../../PowerGallery201-4/rename_and_upload_this_folder/admin_gallery/images/webassist.png"

This is for everything, links, scripts, etc.

Instructions say this:
Rename the folder

Your next step is to rename the rename_and_upload_this_folder directory that was extracted from the .zip file.
Most users will rename this folder 'powergallery' and upload the entire folder to their remote site.

I have tried renaming outside of DW and inside. I assume inside is the proper way to do it for changing file paths. Maybe it is a setting within DW that is causing this.

~~~
Update: I didn't figure out how to do it, but was able to get to installation page by doing a folder find/replace. Installing now; fingers crossed.

But if there is a setting in DW I need to reset, please share.

~~~Update: Installed. Next step: Add a gallery... not allowing a new gallery to install. More paths to find, I expect?

~~~
Checked Adobe notes: Select Always from the Update Links pop-up menu ... This is correct on my settings.

~~

Starting again (5th attempt) If any one has any insight, please advise. Thanks.

Finally got it installed. Here's the trick. Move the rename_and_upload folder out of core. Rename it. THEN add to DW. I was doing it totally backward.

WA: Please add clarification to instructions. Not renamed within DW. Renamed before adding to DW.

I hope this helps someone else.

It is posible to rename the folder within Dreamweaver, when you rename the folder while in Dreamweaver, it will prompt to "Fix Paths", don't let dreamweaver change the paths, say no to that prompt, the paths don't need to be changed.
