It looks like it's included in the latest EA build

Just noticed: It's also on the list of recently added controllers:

Latest Build shows it in the list but when I connect the Launchpad Pro I get (3) Options

2-Launchpad Pro (custom mapping)
MIDIIN2 - (2-Launchpad Pro) (custom mapping)
MIDIIN3 - (2-Launchpad Pro) (custom mapping)

there isn't anything mapped in any of these selections

deleted the lines out of the settings xml and then reconnected the Launchpad Pro and got this set of lines


<controllers>
<disableBuiltInDefinitions>no</disableBuiltInDefinitions>
<controllersCustomization>
<controller name="SIMPLE_MIDI_4661_81" mapper="SIMPLE_MIDI_4661_81 - custom mapping" />
</controllersCustomization>

Its not seeing the Launchpad Pro correctly?

OK, we see the problem. We will come up with a solution and email you shortly.

FYI, unfortunately we had to base the detection on the driver name, which appears that under some circumstances, Windows add a number before the name of the device, so yours got detected as 2-LaunchPad Pro instead of just LaunchPad Pro, thus was not detected.
As we cant reproduce this at will (no matter what, our unit doesnt get this 2- number), please keep your setup as is, to confirm fix with the test Build we will send you.
thanks for reporting.

Okay, there appears to be something weird going on with the Device Manager (the old way to uninstall a device) BECAUSE THE WINDOWS 10 WAY USING > Settings (Windows 10) > Devices WORKED. Once I used the "Windows 10" Right Click Start (Or the Window Charm in the Taskbar) > Settings > Devices > Bluetooth and Other Devices and I removed the Device called "Launchpad Pro" my problem cleared up. When I "Uninstalled" from "Device Manager" (The old way) the problem wouldn't clear up. With the assistance of an IT Friend, after the device was removed from the Windows 10 Settings > Devices > Bluetooth and Other Devices Window, he then recommended that I start Virtual DJ first then plug in the USB Device to my USB 3.0 High Speed Port and WAAAA LAAAA!

Yes, its some weird Windows enumeration issue, which still remains a mystery. Meaning that OK, we know how to fix this, but why does it happen in first place ? Was perhaps some unsuccessful first installation of a Windows driver and then next time Windows thought it was a different device ? Is it some USB-type port difference, a USB hub thing ?

So, you can no more reproduce this 2- numbered device ... pity was counting on your setup to try something hehe. , but OK, its good that it works now for you.

Sorry, had a need to be up and running tonight. Hopefully my notes about how I fixed it will help someone else! Thank you everyone for all your input! Good to have this working!

Have a blessed day!
