imported XML file for midi contol not saving

Hey guys here is a new problem. Ive never had this on any other version of cubase, but I have an akai pro mpk49 setup as a generic remote in device setup. Now to use the transport controlls you need to import an xml file from akai, which i had done from cubase 5 onwards which worked fine. Now all of a sudden i have noticed that the transport controls dont work and that the xml file hasnt loaded the play, stop,fast forward, rewind, record into the generic remote. ok, sweet i thought maybe cause of an update i have to reimport it. Which i done and it works fine. then i save the project, close and open it again and the transport controls arent working again.

Anyone else? how can i fix this?
