Thanks to JetBrains for this mega development environment!

HowTo / Notes

  1. Download setup file from sourceforge.
  2. Setup the wine prefix how you like; guides can be found on the internet.
    - I got it working with the default Windows 7 and win32 architecture.
  3. Run wine setupbdv16j.exe (or whatever you setup file is called)
  4. Follow the installation prompts; .desktop shortcuts should be created
  5. If you wish to run in the command line:
    a. cd "/path/to/wineprefix/drive_c/Program Files/Bridge Designer 2016 (2nd Edition)/"
    b. wine bdv16j243.exe
