Use nRF Connect v2.6.0 on Linux to erase, program softdevice.
Use Keil to program application firmware
Does not work:
Use nRF Go studio to detect the DK, detected serial number, but no device is detected.
Use nRF Connect v2.6.1 on Windows 10, showed error : "Error while probing devices: Error occured when get serial numbers. Errorcode: CouldNotLoadDLL (0x3)"
Use Keil to download Softdevice

nRFgo Studio is no longer supported, so it might not work for newer versions of Windows etc, I suggest that you use nRF Connect Programmer.
Which application in nRF Connect have you opened?
Are you able to use nrfjprog?
Here is my Flash Download setup:
I tried to use "Programmer" application within nRF Connect and error ""Error while probing devices: Error occured when get serial numbers. Errorcode: CouldNotLoadDLL (0x3)" shown when opened.
With KEIL, there are 2 targets for selection:
nrf52840_xxaa, whose target configuration contains 2 Flash download algorithms like the screenshot you showed.
flash_s140_nrf52_6.1.0_softdevice whose target configuration contains 1 Flash download alogorithm like the screenshot I provided. Notice that there is no more flash algorithm when clickg the ADD button, in the screenshot I also showd.
Every single KEIL project is setup this way, and in the documentation, they specifically said the "flash_s140_nrf52_6.1.0_softdevice " is the target selection for downloading softdevice.
Can you try to program the SoftDevice using nrfjprog?
I figured out why nRF connect did not work on windows. I needed to install nrfprog tool and this tool installed the driver.
