CC-messages not in mixdown

Hello everyone!
Im a Cubase Artist 8 user and my issue is that when I automate pitchbends and modulation wheel (into the velocity-and-other-cc-signals-area underneath the piano roll) they dont go into the mixdown, so the only thing I hear is the original note without the bend or mod wheel effects.
I havent tried other CCs, but I suspect they all are affected.
Is there some setting I have to do or is something wrong with my software?

If it happens to be important the synth ive been using is Iris 2, Im on windows 8 and my windows midi thingy is called Coolsoft virtual midisynth.

Any ideas?
