Launchpad MK2 lights

Hello everyone :)

I got a Launpad MK2 for Christmas and now i was playing with it for a bit. The problem is, that the lights don't work, if i choose "Launchpad MK2" under the MIDI preferences. The lights do work however if i select "Launchpad" as the first option, problem with that is, that the buttons i press on my launchpad now launch different "buttons" in the program, so that the project files i got are completely uselss. So atm i can choose between either playing the song without light, or having lights, but being unable to play at all.

Hope anyone can help me fix this error quickly

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
