Invalid Plug-in?

I downloaded tools_v5.4.1 and attempted to install it, and got the following message:

calibre, version 0.9.7
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>InvalidPlugin</b>:The plugin in tools_v5.4.1.zip' is invalid. It does not contain a top-level __init__.py file

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\preferences\plugins.py", line 310, in add_plugin
File "site-packages\calibre\customize\ui.py", line 362, in add_plugin
File "site-packages\calibre\customize\ui.py", line 54, in load_plugin
File "site-packages\calibre\customize\zipplugin.py", line 160, in load
File "site-packages\calibre\customize\zipplugin.py", line 255, in _locate_code
InvalidPlugin: The plugin in u'C:/Users/Gene/Downloads/tools_v5.4.1.zip' is invalid. It does not contain a top-level __init__.py file

Obviously I did something wrong. What?

That zip file is not a plugin. Extract and examine the files in this archive to find the actual plugins.

Also if OP was talking about K4PC plugin, remember to remove/uninstall old version in Calibre before installing new version in Calibre.
It's in the release notes, but missed it myself
Cheers,

OK! Got it! I thought I posted this yesterday but I guess I did something wrong there too.
