If you do an Internet search with Google there are any number of messages like yours about knife.vbx .

I have not browsed them.

My thoughts are though -have you right clicked on the start menu item that starts the program running and selected Properties. Selected Compatability and chosen "Run this program in compatability mode" for Windows 95.

after reading your reply.No solution at all. I searched the internet either,but noone was given a solution,that?s why I posted it in the forum.I guess my only choice is to multiboot my pc with XP-98SE so I can use the 2 or 3 old programs I can?t use with XP.Thanks for your reply!
