Error when uploading HTML5 files on AdWords

I made an HTML5 ad using GWD, chose AdWords as the environment. Successfully published it locally with the necessary settings.  Then when I try to upload it on Google AdWords it returns an error saying a file is not referenced in the HTML file. there are only 3 images in my assets; 1 jpg file and 2 png files.

Please tell me what is wrong. Thanks! I can provide the published zip file if you need it.

Hello and welcome to our cozy nest on the interwebs.

Did you, by any chance, include an asset initially and then removed it from the timeline so that now it is among the assets files but not used in your HTML5 file? Maybe this is AdWords' way of telling you that you shouldn't upload assets that are not used.
