This is at least the 5th time I've seen people having this problem.  You cannot ever simply install the SAP SDK .ZIP source files to Design Studio without putting them in an Eclipse Feature Project so that you can bundle them in a bundled, deployable form.

This means you must do that yourself.  Please review section 3.3 of the SDK Guide which explains step by step how you must do this:

Please, please, please read the documentation.

Depending on who is releasing these SDK extensions, some people choose to provide the source only, and other people will provide the source, and a pre-bundled version.  SAP has only released the source projects so you have more work to do.

Not everybody is an SDKer so I have opted to pre-bundle anything I give out.  (I'd do it for SAP's examples, too but it's not my work.)
