Axiom air mini 32 -amiright?

So, has anyone gotten this peripheral working in Cubase 8.5? I’ve installed 2 M-audio .dll files into my components directory, ran .exe for each as well, and one of them even bore the title of this very controller.
Indeed, the controller seemed present in menu form in my devices area. I even tried a demonstration video of some kind.
Never did Cubase 8 show any sign of recognizing the Axiom Air 32 Mini.

Anyone else experience this?

I tried switching the USB port and that worked. No idea why though.
