Ideas for running a VB4 application on modern hardware?

I can’t really tell if this is on-topic, but there’s [no|some|much] shame
in trying?

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?
