I have an LPCXpresso LPC1114 REV A, Windows Vista 64 bit, LPCXpresso v4.2.0_264

When I connect the LPCXpresso board to any USB slot (directly, no hub), I get a "USB Device with DFU Capabilities" added under Device Manager.
When I choose the Blinky application and select debug, I get a message that "No emulator/board available".
Based on what I read, I go to the Scripts directory and run "bootLPCXpresso HID", which causes the USB Device with DFU Capabilities" to be replaced by a generic "HID-complient device" and "USB Human Interface Device" entries under the Device Manager.
Now, selecting the Blinky application for debug, I get an error message "Command failed" target extended-remote | crt_emu_lpc11_13 nxp -g -mi -4 -pLPC1114/301 -vendor=NXP -wire=hid -msg-port=49262
Reason: The program file specified in launch configuration does not exist" and in the details it complains:
"Caused by: java.io.FileNotFoundException: C:\Users\Uri\Documents\LPCXpresso_4.2.0_264\workspace\blinky\Debug\blinky.axf not found". However, the blinky.axf file is actually there, having a size of 502KB.

Any idea why it fails to locate the file? How to avoid the need to manually bootload the board?
