    OctoSK6812 errors

    Im trying to use the modified code for RGBW LED strips from here:

    I used the Arduino "Add .zip Library" to install the library and I installed it manually into Arduino>Libraries folder, but I still get the following errors:

    I'm simply trying to compile the supplied OctoSK6812Test file as such:

    /*Required Connections
        pin 2:  LED Strip #1    OctoWS2811 drives 8 LED Strips.
        pin 14: LED strip #2    All 8 are the same length.
        pin 7:  LED strip #3
        pin 8:  LED strip #4    A 100 ohm resistor should used
        pin 6:  LED strip #5    between each Teensy pin and the
        pin 20: LED strip #6    wire to the LED strip, to minimize
        pin 21: LED strip #7    high frequency ringining & noise.
        pin 5:  LED strip #8
        pin 15 & 16 - Connect together, but do not use
        pin 4 - Do not use
        pin 3 - Do not use as PWM.  Normal use is ok.

    Im running windows10, Arduino 1.8.2 and teensyduino 1.41 with a teensy 3.2

    Anyone have any clues why it cant seem to find the right files?? I read somewhere online that dashes werent advised for libs, so I did change that to an underscore, but it didnt seem to help...would love to get this running.

    for what its worth, the original code for Octo2811 works just fine.

    thanks in advance.
