Good.Is there another midi workaround or do you think it is just an OS thing?
I'm not sure just now. I am guessing the problem is with the i2M editor, or rather the communication that is done from the OS to the i2M when using this. If that's the case, you should be able to configure the i2M settings using the editor, then they will be saved in the i2M. Then you can use the i2M without the editor using up to 4 presets you have created. NOTE: to ensure the settings are fully stored in the i2M, you should disconnect it from the computer after editing the settings, then connect it again to confirm the settings have been stored correctly.
It would be good to know if it works ok for you if you don't use the i2M editor.
