Software Platform

Bridge Deal Manager runs on Microsoft Windows 7 and later, under Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 or later.

The Deals database is managed in-process with SQLite. The drivers are built into the application.

The Data Store

The deals are maintained in a Deals database, but the folders are maintained separately in an XML file. Both files are kept in the same Windows directory which the user selects on first execution. It is advisable to create a dedicated directory that will get backed up as part of the machine’s normal housekeeping.

The Deals database also contains the report and HTML report formats.

As above, the Deals database is in SQLite format. The Folders file is an XML-style document.
