multipage dwf compression

I am having trouble understanding the compression format of a multi-page dwf.

I basically need to update a page from time to time without having to regenerate the entire file.

I can read the dwf contents and update a file using winzip if it was created using mergefiles.

However, if use winzip to create a new archive (and the rename it to dwf), I get error messages that say the file is not a dwf.

does anyone know what the difference is. why does winzip save an existing file correctly but not a new one.

I found my own answer

insert "(DWF V06.00)" at the begining of the zip file and everything works out
