The 1995 version of kb.exe contains no compression. The 1990 version is compressed twice: with Microsoft EXEPACK in inner layer and Knowledge Dynamics LZW COMPRESSOR in outer layer. To mod this version, both compressions should be removed. Telling two versions apart is easy - uncompressed exe is 113718 bytes long, while compressed takes only 79839 bytes.
