CF Flasher - Could not initialize BDM device

I'm trying to program a custom board with an MCF5274 on it. We've done this for years on other PCs, but for convenience, I was trying to run the procedure on my own machine. For reference, I'm running Windows 7 64-bit.


I have a USB ColdFire Multilink cable. I've installed CF Flasher 3.1 as well as the P&E USB drivers (downloaded and ran the installer that includes PROGCFZ The short story is that the PROGCFZ program can detect the Multilink cable, and detect and initialize the processor.


However, the algorithm and configuration that I have for this board are for the CF Flasher program. There, I configure the target and select PE_USB_ML from the device list, but no matter what operation I choose, I get the same dialog: "Could not initialize BDM device."


I've done this on other machines in the building many times, and I've even installed the programs before, so I'm familiar with their operation. I can't figure out why it won't work on this one PC. Any help? Thanks!
