System Requirements


The initial installation of the Firebird Server for your database will require 20 mb.

The normal rate of growth of the database file without file attachments is 1 MB per 7000 records.

Pictures in the personnel records can be added at a rate of about 6 MB per 100 personnel.

If file attachments are added to records, the database will grow in size based on the size of the attachments.

Minimum CPU: 300 Mhz
Operating System: Windows 98 or higher (2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10) - 32 or 64 bit.

Vehicle Manager Database


Vehicle Manager stores all of the data and pictures in a single database file.
Vehicle Manager Database files have the file extension “.vdb”.
Vehicle Manager backup files are compressed to save space and have the file extension “.vbk”.
Vehicle Manager uses the open source Firebird database version 2.1.7 for data storage.
The local database is stored at the following location:
Windows XP:  C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\VehicleManager\VehicleData.vdb
Windows Vista, 7, 8, and 10:  C:\Program Data\VehicleData.vdb
The remote database is stored at the following location on the database server:

Third-party applications can read the Vehicle Manager database via ODBC. See additional information at the following link:
