Freedom's Precompiled Examples No Longer Work

Hey Everyone,

First time diving into ARM coming from the Arduino platform. First I have to say the setup is some what hectic, nothing near what needs to be done for Arduino. Anyways, on to my problem. I installed everything, not necessarily in order and I got things working and was able to swap out examples. I had to unplug the usb cable everytime (more on that later). Then I got to the Keil MDK and it wasn't able to find the uLink I believe. So I figured I screwed something up during the IDE install. Somewhere in that time I wasn't able to upload examples anymore. So I thought, what the heck, I've need to do a fresh install of my W7 bootcamp. So here I am today after fresh install of W7 and I followed the freedom boards instructions to the T. During the "Quick Setup" I was never able to change the example on the board, it's still stuck on the last one I put on it a few days ago. I do remember that when I dragged an example it would give confirmation that it was coded or something like that. I do not get that at all. Please help me out guys and I'm getting frustrated and already wanting to go to NXP since I can develop natively on OSX. Only reason I'm using Freescale is because their M0+ are cheap for mass production and NXP has yet to put pricing out on theirs since they're still in "development".
