Bootloader.exe (v5.32) - Error starting API! message from cmd line

I'm trying to flash one of our MC1312x devices - and to ease some of our support dept issues to update a few of our devices using the command line version of TestTool - Bootloader.exe.  While the GUI TestTool works fine in flashing the new .s19 files - using Bootloader.exe with the same devices & s19 returns the message "Error starting API!"
 
The simple test with bootloader.exe has been:
c:\program files\freescale\test tool\s19> bootloader.exe testConfigWBLv1.4.s19 /C COM3
The rest of the defaults (baud @ 19200, evk_embedded_bootloader.bdm s.b. fine)
 
Something simple I'm overlooking?  Another (better) way to offer a cmd line flash of the s19?
 
Thanks!
