Activation Error: "unknown entity type 'Archive'"



I have a problem with a External Library - DC:

1) Add a new DC of type External Library

3) Go to Windows Explorer and copy a JAR file

4) Go to Navigator tab of the Development Configurations Perspective and paste the JAR files into the libraries folder

5) Right-click JAR file and choose Development Component => Add to Public Part

6) Choose the "Provide an API for developing/compiling other DCs" radio button from the popup

7) Check-In Activity

8) When I want to activate the Avtitity I get an CBS Build Error:

Does anyone know why the entity type 'Archive' is unknown in the CBS?
