What it's saying is that for some reason it can't find your target file. Have you edited your target file in a text editor? Can you open it successfully in Flare?

I have not edited the target file. Yes, I can open it successfully in Flare. Do not know where is the issue

Posting this to help someone else out there who may run into this problem ... since it's probably way too late to help the original poster. :)

We were getting the same issue for an HTML5 target. The error said it could not find the target file (somefilename.fltar) but the path for that target was somewhere in the output folder hierarchy. Made no sense, and the full path was not exceeding the 255 character limit.
Turns out the issue was my target pointed to a CSH file that did not exist. (on the bottom of the Advanced tab)

Hope this helps someone else!
