Updating to Salon Iris Version 12

Updating from a previous version of Salon Iris is easy. We always recommend making a backup of your database before any updates or installations.

Backup Your Database
Open Salon Iris to make a backup copy of your database. You shouldn’t need it since the database will be updated automatically, but it’s always safe to have an extra backup!
  1. Go to the File drop-down menu and select Backup and Restore, then select Backup Database.
  2. Click Next.
  3. Select a location to save the database and then click Save.
  4. After the backup is saved close the software.
Uninstall the Software
If you are updating from a version prior to Version 7, you will have to completely uninstall your software before updating to Version 12.
  1. Go to Control Panel.
  2. Select Programs and Features.
  3. Locate Salon Iris on the list and select Uninstall.
Install the Updated Software
Download the update file here. Just click the Download Latest Version button and follow the prompts to install. After the installation has finished, start the software.

Register & Activate
When Version 12 starts up, you will be prompted to Use the Free Version or Enter Registration Info. If you do not already have an online account, create one before registering. Use the serial number provided with your purchase to create an administrator account for your business.

With your account created, click Enter Registration Info on this screen and enter your username and password. If you have already created an online account for Salon Iris, enter your username and password here and click Register. If you are unable to set up an account at this time, you can also register by clicking the Enter Serial Number, but using an online account is the preferred method.

X-Charge Users
If you are using X-Charge software, please be sure you have Version 7.1 or greater. Please do not uninstall X-Charge prior to updating it. You will need to check for updates within the X-Charge software and follow the prompts to install the updates. If you do need an update for X-charge, you can find it on the support downloads page here.
