Error when manually uploading plugin in crowd 2.3.4

Hi,

We tried uploading plugin manually in crowd (..\plugins\installed-plugins) and started the crowd. We got an error in log files saying

From the log life, what does the below error mean

ERROR [atlassian.plugin.loaders.ScanningPluginLoader] Unable to deploy plugin 'null', file Unit: E:\ToolSet\Data\CrowdData\plugins\installed-plugins (1329978562541)
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The artifact URI file:/E:/ToolSet/Data/CrowdData/plugins/installed-plugins/ is not a valid plugin artifact.

Appreciate if some one look into it and reply us.
