I can't see the IES light on the models, as you can see in the attached image.

Do you enabled Global Illumination? (Like the product lighting preset).
Is the part with the IES light intersecting a solid material?

Yes to all. I attached the ksp file here.

In your image, it looks like the IES light is not pointing to the ground. I'd rotate the object the IES light is applied to to make sure it's illuminating the ground (or whatever you wish to point it toward).

The light is pointed to the model. THERE IS NO REASON TO BE POINTED TO THE GROUND.

Just to be sure... you know the light comes out of the wide part, right? Not the pointy part.... In your image, the light is pointing to the left.

You were right, I had to rotate the light. Thanks.
