Programming LoRa-E5 Dev. Board with ST-LINK Clone

Dear Sirs,
Has anyone here been successful on connecting to a LoRa-E5 Dev. board with an ST-LINK V2 clone like:

I have the USB -C cable (supplied) plugged in for power, and the GND, SWDIO and SWCLK connected as indicated here:

When I try to connect with STM32 ST-LINK programmer, I get:
Can not connect to target!
If you’re trying to connect to an STM32W1xx device, please select Normal or HotPlug mode from Target->Settings menu.
If you’re trying to connect to a low frequency application , please select a lower SWD Frequency mode from Target->Settings menu.

I have been holding down the RESET button, hitting CONNECT on the programmer utility, and letting go of RESET. The STM32CUBEProgrammer doesn’t even give me an error message when I try to use it.

Has anyone been successful at this?

Thanks!
Duane Kaufman
