Installing Salon Iris on a Mac

Installing Salon Iris software on an Apple computer is a simple, one-time process with just a few steps. We recommend setting aside a few hours to complete the download and setup process. If you already have Windows installed on your Mac, you can simply skip to Installing Salon Iris.

Getting and Installing Parallels and Windows
You will need to purchase both Parallels and a copy of the Windows operating system. We recommend using Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac and Windows 10 Home.

Parallels can be purchased here and Windows 10 can be purchased here directly from Microsoft or anywhere computer software is sold. You must purchase either an OEM copy or DVD copy of Windows to install it on your Mac.

The links below detail how to install both the Parallels software and the Windows operating system on your Mac.
