USBDM won't work with Freemaster or KDS

On one of my Windows 10 computers I cannot get USBDM to work with Freemaster (version 2.0 or 3.0) or KDS (3.2.  I've tried reinstalling Freemaster and the USBDM drivers and utilities with no effect.  The USBDM utilities (ARM GDB server, ARM Programmer) work fine so it appears there's nothing wrong with the drivers or adapter.  When I attempt to connect using plug-in "FreeMASTER BDM Communication Plug-in "CoretxM, PowerPC, HSC08/12, Coldfire" the USBDM option is greyed out in the Config dialog box.

 

I also cannot get the KDS debugger to connect via the USBDM adapter.  I am able to configure and launch a Debug session and the specific USBDM adapter serial# appears in the "BDM Selection" pull-down but the launch terminates with:

 

"Error with command: gdb --version
Cannot run program "gdb": Launching failed"

 

The same hardware and software are working on a couple other computers in my lab all of which are running the same Win 10 OS.
