Has anyone tried Pempro with a Vixen mount?

Yes, I used it to polar align my Vixen Atlux on a permanent pier.

I also did runs with PEMPro to model the PE and then after five cycles run corrections with the mount's controller (a SkySensor2000-PC Vers 2.10) in learning mode. In the past I have trained PE with PHD running on 3 second shots and corrections. Both methods work fine.

I guess you need to specify what controller you are using or your mount - starbook, SS2K or a retro fitted Gemini etc. My guess is if your on a recent mount you have the very pretty Starbook controller, which with the latest firware update now claims to have almost 1/3 the functionality that the SS2K has :)

Might I suggest you try the Yahoo group for the Starbook - users there might also be able to assist you!
