Flash Programmer Save doesn't work for Binary (Save based on Map)

I am using VDSP++ 5.0 Update 9 and am attempting to use the Flash Programmer Save feature to extract the contents of Flash.  I am selecting the Sector(s) I want in the Flash Map, selecting Binary format, entering an output file and clicking the Save button.  The debug code in my driver always shows reading of address 0 rather than the sector that I select in the Flash map.

If I choose Intel Hex format, my driver reports reading of the proper location in Flash.  I would really like the output in raw binary, but I suppose I could create a tool to convert the format from Intel Hex or write a VB script to read the flash sectors.

It appears that for Binary format my selections in the Flash Map are ignored when it comes to reading flash.

Is there an update to the Device Programmer that will correct this problem?
