ADSP-BF706 EZ-KIT Mini CCES Failed to connect to processor.

I have a brand new ADSP-BF706 EZ-KIT Mini and I have an issue connecting the  debugging an example application with CCES.

When I click the debug button I get the following error : " Error in launching sequence"

Error in launch sequence
[TpsdkServer] Failed to connect to processor.

Error: 0x80044005
Error Description

When I created debug configuration I run the Test in the target configurator tool and all the tests passed.

Any idea what is going wrong...

I am using the latest CCES.

    Unfortunately the 0x80044005 connection error is a generic error message and doesn't help narrow down the cause of the problem.

    On a similar note, it could be that this particular board is booting a corrupt image from flash which is locking up the processor and not allowing the tools to connect. We would
    recommend you try changing the boot mode pin on the target, power cycling the board, then trying to connect again.

    Please refer the below FAQ which may help you:

    Also we recommend to uninstall and reinstall the emulator driver manually.

    We have attached the emulator drivers.Please copy the attached drivers into <installation drive>:\Analog Devices\CrossCore Embedded Studio 2.8.0\Setup\Emu_Drivers

    Please follow the below procedure for manually install driver:
    1.Go to Windows Device manager and uninstall the emulator driver from the CrossCore Tools.
    2.Go to Windows\system32\driver folder and delete the WmUsbIce.sys and WmUsbIce64.sys files.
    3.Go to Windows\inf folder (note this may be hidden) and search for files named "oem**.inf" and delete the files which contains the string "89982A59-5EEA-45aa-AF97-52EC351018C2" inside the file.These all of which are Analog Devices inf files, and must be deleted to ensure that your system does not pick up the existing drivers.
    4. Disconnect USB cable from the Target Board and PC.
    5. Power down, then reboot the PC.
    6. Connect USB to Target Board.At this point Windows should detect the new hardware.
    7. Try installing the driver manually by browse to the location of the "adiusb.inf" file found (..\Emu_Drivers).

    If you are facing the same issue,please share us the below details to assist you further on this issue.

    1.Does the ICE Test utility run successfully or does it fail at any point? If the Test fails, please provide us with a screenshot showing the ICE Test results.
    2.Do you have any other target board of the same type, which operates correctly with your PC?
    3.Are you connected the USB cable via USB port native to your PC?If you are using a USB hub, can you try connecting the USB cable from the board directly to the PC.
    If you are connecting directly to a USB port then try connecting to a different USB port.
    4.Do you have access to another PC? If you do, please let us know if the emulator detected correctly without any issues?
    5.Are you using USB port 3.0?.If so,please check with USB 2.0 and let us know how you gets on.
    6.Have you ever been able to use this board correctly, or is this the first time you have tried to use it?
    7.Does the board detected by PC ? Check whether the board listed under 'Crosscore tools'. If listed, double-click on the board to show the driver properties and ensure there are no
    issues listed. If there, please share the screenshot of the device manager which shows the board and screenshot of the driver tab by clicking the board > properties > Driver.

    Please read through our Emulator Troubleshooting Guide and let us know the results of the troubleshooting steps it advises.
