Launchpad Lights not working

Hello, so I recently purchased a Launchpad Pro.  I downloaded the Nev's project for his launchpad cover of Equinox.  At first it says to set preferences according to his screenshot, which I did to the best of my ability as the launchpad Pro has extra preferences (here is what I did: ).  The next steps are supposed to allow the lights to be shown, and this is what I did: .  I also notice differences between his software and mine.  So I'm wondering, did I do something wrong here or is there something else I need to do? Also, this file was made for a Launchpad S (I think), not a Launchpad Pro - would that have any affect?

Oh, and I also have Ableton Live suite 9, if you are wondering.

I am also new to the launchpad, I had the same problems. I changed from Ableton Live lite 9 to Suite 9 due to some problems with the launchpad.

Some projects are made for the Launchpad S (older version) that's why some projects are useless. I found a tutorial that teaches you to turn a launchpad s proyect to a MK2.            This tutorial doesn't work with all the proyects. Some proyects are 100% useless for the mk2, some others are 50% usless (lights work but no sound, sound works but no lights or lights and sound work but you can't change pages [the buttons that change the samples]. But, this could make proyects from usless to 100% usable.

100% usable proyects from launchpad s that I know
