Soundblaster Live! card doesn't run my gear

I have a Soundblaster Live! card in my new Win98 PC, hooked up via its game port to the MIDI in/out of my Roland XP10 and thence to a Yamaha P100 digital piano. MIDI In to the PC works fine, but not MIDI out to the synth.

A computer engineer has checked it out, and it works fine with his little Yamaha home keyboard. What on earth can be wrong? We had his keyboard next to my gear, and I played MIDIfiles through his keyboard with no problem. Plugging the cable into my synth didn't make it work. The cable is obviously not faulty. My equipment works fine with a little old hardware sequencer running it, so there is no hardware fault. My piano is set to MIDI Receive All (OMNI mode); the Roland synth is set with sounds on all 16 channels.

Any ideas?
