NT 4 or Win2000 would be smaller, and as long as the VM doesn?t need internet/network
access the security issues should be?manageable. Alternately, does it run under Wine? A
stripped-down Linux distro would be small.
(and i assume you don?t have the source code, that would be the best solution)

I can?t really tell if this is on-topic, but there?s [no|some|much] shame
I have a Visual Basic 4 application that I need to run on modern 64-bit
hardware I can do this in a VM, but I really need this VM to be wicked
small, like under a gig. The smallest XP VM I?ve seen is 600MB (which might
be good) but XP is becoming very hard to source these days.
I am bummed that there doesn?t seem to be something like vDOS or DOSBOX for
VB applications. Or? maybe there is?
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I might go about doing this?
