Wouldn't it be the linker that throws an error and not the preprocessor?

Can you please change the wording to:

"If the file to be included doesn't exist, the preprocessor generates an error message".

"Flashes" is ambiguous and could be interpreted that an error message will get flashed into the hardware.
