Installing Orchid Medical Spa Software for the first time
Installing Orchid on your computer for the first time is easy, and should only take a few minutes. Whether you are installing the trial or a full copy of the software, the instructions are the same. If you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.
Before you install Orchid, make sure that your computer meets the system requirements.
1. Download Orchid Medical Spa Software
Download the latest version of Orchid using the link below.
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.
2. Install Prerequisite Software
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.
Before installing Orchid on your computer, the installer will check to make sure your computer has all of the programs needed in order for Orchid to work properly. If it detects one or more missing applications, it will install them for you. Press the Install button to install these applications.
3. Install Orchid
Once the prerequisite applications are finished installing, 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 Orchid will continue installing.
When it is done, select the option to Launch Orchid, which will open the program after you click on Finish.
4. Starting Orchid for the first time
When you start Orchid 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 Start Fresh option. If you would like to start learning how to use Orchid Medical Spa Software with some sample information (which can be deleted later), select Start with Some Sample Information.
