This works for me when I’m on the card with the button:
put "btn: Set10to15" && the hilited of button "Set10to15"

This works for me on any card in the stack:
put "btn: Set10to15" && the hilited of button "Set10to15" of cd "GameCardHD"

The button I’m referencing is in a group on the cd "GameCardHD" 

Any chance you have two buttons with the same name on the card? Perhaps same name, but in different groups? I ask, because I seen similar results as you describe when I’ve done both of those things.

be well,
