I am using Eclipse 3.3.2 (Europa)

I created a distributable zip of my plug-in as folows :

File->Export->Plug-in Development->Deployable Plug-ins and Fragments->Next.
Selected my plug-in in the list 'Available plug-ins and fragments'
Selected the option 'Archive file' in 'Destination' tab.
Provided path using 'Browse' button and pressed Finish.

Eclipse did create a zip file.

I tried to install it as follows :

Help->Software Updates-> Find and Install->Search For New Features To
Install->New Archived Site.
Then I pointed Eclipse to the directory on the file system where my zip is.

I get a dialog with following message :
"Selected archive does not contain an update site. Please select another
What is it that I am doing wrong?

Is there any other way / procedure to create a distributable zip / jar of
my plug-in?
