Help With UberEnviroment Lights?

Okay, I took a screenshot to best explain my problem. I guess I'm not understanding a few things when it comes to Uber Enviroment Lights.

I load a scene with no lights, and go down to Studio --> Lights. I chose from the UberEnvironment DS3 folder the "UberEnvironment Base". Then I tried loading it. Everything pretty much rendered black. Okay, so then I tried choosing one of the high quality settings, while I have the UberEnvrionment 1 selected in my scene. As you can see above I get this error. Why? I AM selecting an UberEnvironment Light aren't I?

I don't understand the rendering black either. I tried loading the sunset present instead too, and the Park one. All I get is black scene. Am I supposed to be using UberEnvironment in conjunction with other lights? I think I have tried but I see no difference. I feel I am definitely not getting how UberEnvironment works.

To go along with that I am about to try to buy the UberSurface2 Layered Shader for DAZ Studio, but I'm not sure I'd know how that works either haha.

    It looks like you are trying to use the old Uber Environment 1 (which is for DS2) in DS3 or higher. You should be using UE2 which should be at : %APPDATA%\DAZ 3D\Studio3\DAZ Built-in Content\Lights\UberEnvironment2\

    For more information on how to use UE2, see the "Learning Uber Environment 2" thread found in my freebies and tutorials index below.
