Default midnam and middev

Hello everybody in here.
I know that this thread has been treated in the past but all the advices I found in the forum didn't help me in fixing my issue.
I'm talking about the famous pair .midnam & .middev
In short what I need is:
I have two D-550 in my rack, among other modules, and would like to have two separate .midnam with the patch names for the two synth.
What I did is:
first I edited the .middev file copying and pasting the section relative to the D-550 and changing the model name with MY D-550 for the second one.

<MIDIDeviceType Manufacturer="Roland"
Model="D-550"
CanRoute="false"
SupportsMMC="false"
Image="OMS1026">
<DeviceID Min="1" Max="16" Default="1" Base="1" />
<Receives MaxChannels="1"
MTC="false"
Clock="false" />
</MIDIDeviceType>

<MIDIDeviceType Manufacturer="Roland"
Model=“MY D-550"
CanRoute="false"
SupportsMMC="false"
Image="OMS1026">
<DeviceID Min="1" Max="16" Default="1" Base="1" />
<Receives MaxChannels="1"
MTC="false"
Clock="false" />
</MIDIDeviceType>


Then I duplicate into the right folder the .midnam file changing the name of the files in MY D-550

<MIDINameDocument>
<Author>CherryPicker</Author>
<MasterDeviceNames>
<Manufacturer>Roland</Manufacturer>
<Model>MY D-550</Model>
<CustomDeviceMode Name="" >
<ChannelNameSetAssignments>

and the name of the file itself in MY D-550.

Then, I create a new midi device into the studio midi management with the name MY D-550

But when I try to use it into my pro tools (2018-10) mac mini late 2012 quad i7 / el Capitan OSX 10.11.6 I get the same old error message that the path file is not available for this device.

------------

Hope someone could help me in fixing this issue.
Thanks in advance
Marco
