The dreaded "Selected directory does not contain Kinetis SDK 2.x for KDS" error

I've read other threads about how to build a proper SDK that includes the KDS tools (rather than GNU tools).  

 

As far as I can tell, I have selected the KDS tools while building my SDK, yet I'm still getting "Selected directory does not contain Kinetis SDK 2.x for KDS" when I try to build a new project.

 

Here's the full rundown:

 

I visited Welcome to MCUXpresso | MCUXpresso Config Tools and created a new configuration:

I selected "Config Settings" and selected "Kinetis Design Studio":

I reviewed the details, confirmed that it included "Toolchain: Kinetis Design Studio" before saving the download file:

I unzipped the freshly-downloaded SDK_2.2_FRDM-KL25Z-full.tar.gz file.  

 

Then, in KDS_v3, I selected File => New => Kinetis SDK 2.x Project.

 

In the Kinetis SDK 2.x Project Wizard, I selected the SDK_2.2_FRDM-KL25Z-full directory, but was greeted with the "Selected directory does not contain Kinetis SDK 2.x for KDS" error message:

 

I'm baffled as  to why this is.  I'm attaching the FRDM-KL25Z_manifest.xml file in case that helps.
