Multi-Computer Edition Hardware Requirements

The following hardware specifications are recommended if you
are using Salon Iris on multiple computers in your business.
Follow these specifications for the Multi-Computer edition of
Salon Iris. For adequate performance to run the software,
please follow at least the minimum hardware specifications. For
optimal performance, please follow at least the recommended
hardware specifications.

Salon Iris networking uses a true server/client relationship for
maximum speed and efficiency. The server computer is a fully
functioning computer from which you can take appointments,
run payroll, look up clients, etc. You do not need a dedicated
server computer or a very high end computer.

Your server computer will be the computer that runs SQL
Server 2005 Express (or SQL Server, depending on the number
of client computers), holds the database, and is able to make
backups of your database. Because the server computer will
perform the most work, it should be your best quality
computer for optimal performance.

*Internet connection is optional if credit card processing and online booking are not
used, but will allow for better access to support and software updates. If credit card
processing is used, you have the option of using a high speed internet connection or a
modem.




Step 2: Download the Software
Download the latest version of Salon Iris software by going to
our website and click on Download.

Select the option to Run the file. We recommend that you exit
other programs while running the setup file.
Once the software has finished downloading, you will be asked
if you want to run the software at this time. Select Run to
continue.
Step 3: Installing Salon Iris

If you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista, you may see a User
Account Control message come up when the program starts to
install. In this case, allow the setup by clicking on Yes.

You will see a standard welcome screen come up for installing
the program. Click Next to continue.




Accept the license agreement and click on Next to install the
software.
You will then be shown the installation location of the software.
Do not change this location and click on Next.

Finally, click the Install button and Salon Iris will continue with
installing its required components as well as the software itself.

If you did not already have SQL Server 2005 Express installed
on your computer, this will be installed automatically for you.
This software is a required component for Salon Iris software
to run, and holds your database (information). You should not
need to change anything on this screen, but rather just wait for
it to complete.
After SQL Server 2005 Express installs on your computer, the
Salon Iris program itself will install. When it is done, select the
option to Launch Salon Iris, which will open the program after
you click on Finish.
Step 5: Register the software
When you start Salon Iris you will be prompted to register the
software, or continue using the software as a trial. If you have
already purchased the software and have your serial number
select the Register option and enter the serial number in the
spaces provided to continue. Otherwise, you may continue
using the free trial.
You will be asked to create a new blank database, sample
database, or to restore a backup (if you previously had the
software on another computer or are reinstalling on this
computer).

If you would like to get started using the software with your
own employees, services, and clients right away, then choose
the "blank database" option. If you would like to start learning
how to use Salon Iris software with some sample information
(which can be deleted later), select "sample database".
Click OK to create the database and continue.
That's everything! You can now start using Salon Iris
software to manage your business

If you have any problems installing and need assistance,
please contact and we can help with installing and setting up
the software for the first time.
