Technical Specs

LedgerLite consists of a single executable file that runs on any version of Windows. The data is stored in a separate database file.[6]

Two files (LedgerLite.EXE and LedgerLite.LLD) are all that's required to run LedgerLite on any Windows computer.[7]

LedgerLite is a standalone Windows program that doesn't require an Internet connection. However it can be configured to run in a multi-user client/server configuration over a TCP/IP network.[8]

The database can be password protected using 128-bit AES encryption.[9]
