[messages] [Module Design] n00b - Adding files to existing VMOD

I'm trying to add 2 files to an existing module (one file an initial
setup vsav, the other file for a new map window), but there must be
something wrong with my workflow:

1) Change the existing module's file extension from .vmod to .zip in
windows explorer
2) Unzip the zip file to a folder
3) Add the new files to the folders
4) Rezip the file with a new name
5) Change the extension from .zip to .vmod
6) Select the new file in VASSAL with Edit Module (to add the links to
the new files)

Now I get the error that the new file name is not a valid VASSAL module.

What am I screwing up?
