Launchpad S & Launchkey 25 at the same time?

I own both an Novation Launchpad S and a Launchkey 25.  I would like to use both devices at the same time but am having trouble.  I would ideally like to use they keys on the Launchkey for midi synth and knobs for adjusting devices as I go but found this to be a great stuggle.  Attached is a screenshot of my preferences.  As you can see both devices are listed but only one has control of the project.

Has anyone tried plugging it it while holding in the top last 4 buttons to go into the bootloader and changing the device id of the launchpad to see if that works? I really want a launchkey mini for travel stuff but i want to be able to use Multiple at the same time

Thr proper settings are listed in the ableton manual. I have launch pad and  launch key 49 and it works great with the settings shown in the ableton manual.
