identical Codewarrior for Coldfire IDE but different GUI behavior

I wrote previously about the different binary output from apparently identical tools. Now there is a more obvious difference that is even less likely to be explained by external factors.

When I import an elf file by opening from CW IDE, there is a dialog to choose the debug hardware. The list contains around six options, and the PEMicro USB hardware is not in the list.

A coworker here has identical CW setup according to the 300-plus line files we generate from Help-About Freescale Codewarrior-Installed Products-Save As. But when he opens an elf file, the pop-up dialog contains more choices, around ten, including the PEMicro USB debugger.

What could explain this difference? How can I get the longer list of debuggers to show up when I open an elf file?
