FLS kills sysex send by synthmaker to numbered midi-out-port

Hi there,

I'm going to create a dashboard using fl-synthmaker. Currently I downgraded to fl-synthmaker 1.1.7 because 2.0.5 and 2.0.7 will crash for me every time when I try to usen the midi-out component (refer to http://forum.image-line.com/viewtopic.php?f=1933&t=94900&p=692033#p692033).

My requirements are:
- sending to a mid-out-port# midi notes from sequencer and keyboard
- sending to a midi-out-port# sysex messages
- both must use a single midi-port because the external device is connected to a single mid-port only

But as far I can see using a "virtual looback midi-cable" and MIDI-OX as the data dump monitor sysex messages are only sent to the destination when the midi-out device is directly used by fl-synthmaker (and there is NO number assigned to it by fl-studio in the midi settings, so the port is free and not assigned).

This is for a working input too which needs to be totally unassigned/non-numbered by fl-studio to have a working midi-in in fl-synthmaker. Oh my god, this must be a bug, I hope!

As soon I've assigned the midi-out device a number (I use 99 here) the sysex don't arrive at the destination, only some CC messages arrive there.

Although the used "virtual looback midi-cable" (loopbe1) allows 8 clients, fl-synthmaker refused to open the port when I've assigned the midi-out device a midi-out-port a number with "already used by another application".

But how send both midi notes and sysex thru a device which is connected via a single midi connection?
I suppose the filtering out of sysex messages is a bug in fl-studio, because I've read in the forum here fl-studio supports sysex output already before the current release 10.0.9.

I've tried several fl-synthmaker dashboards, most of them trying the way thru the fl-studio numbered (assigned) midi-out-port. No data arrives at the destination, as far I can see in MIDI-OX!
At least when I use them as shown here: "FL SynthMaker Dashboard Tutorial"

P.S.: Once fl-synthmaker was attached to non-numbered (free, not assigned) midi ports I cannot assign (giving a port number again) them to fl-studio after closing the project. I have to restart fl-studio!

Maybe I just did something wrong here. Then please help me and make me "see". Thanks in advance!

Kind regards
