    The error is indicating something is wrong with an actionscript file that you file is using - it is indicating the file is not able to be seen by the outside world.  If you are aware of such a file you need to see that it has a "public" declaration... otherwise it is inaccessible

    The accessibility is an issue with a class file (a file with a .as extension), not anything you will find in the action panel.
