Using X-NUCLEO-IDB04A1 with BlueNRG GUI fails

I want to evaluate BlueNRG using the BlueNRG GUI. My setup is as follows:
  • NUCLEO-F401RE with X-NUCLEO-IDB04A1 installed.
  • BlueNRG GUI software version V2.2.1 (latest)
  • X-CUBE-BLE1 Cube Expansion package
I've followed the instructions found in the X-NUCLEO-IDB04A1 Quick Start Guide and copied Virtual_COM_Port_F401RE.bin the the nucleo drive.

The virtual comm port appears and I can open it from BlueNRG GUI but BlueNRG GUI keeps asking:

"No Firmware detected on the motherboard. Update motherboard Firmware (under Tools menu)."

The proposed firmware installation procedure seems to be targeted at the STEVAL-IDB007V1 BlueNRG-1 development kit and fails with my setup.

Can anyone provide a hint how to get BlueNRG GUI working with the X-NUCLEO-IDB04A1?
