Able to connect to Prop 1 with Propeller Tool but not with SimpleIDE

Hi! New to the forums and the propeller community as a whole.

I am using a Prop Plug REV E to connect and program my Prop 1 in a custom circuit. When I attempt to load SPIN code via Propeller Tool I get no issues, the 'Identify Hardware' tool instantly sees my chip and programs both EEPROM and RAM without issue.

When I try to load compiled C code using SimpleIDE 1.1.2 I have no such luck. I have the same COM port selected and the board type is set to GENERIC. Proploader fails with a return code of -1 and gives this message for any program I attempt to run:

proploader.exe -e -r -I C:/Program Files (x86)/SimpleIDE/bin/../propeller-gcc/propeller-load/ -b rcfast -p COM4 cmm/Hello Message.elf
Opening file 'cmm/Hello Message.elf'
ERROR: Download failed: -1

Opening file 'cmm/Hello Message.elf'
ERROR: Download failed: -1

I have tried to see if Prop Tool uses a similar proploader command that I could use as a reference but I'm not sure if it relies on it to begin with.

Is there an obvious mistake that I am making here?

I am using Windows 10 if that helps.

Any help is appreciated, thanks!
