How do I generate a new Phorest license key?

This article will show you how you can generate a new license key from within your Phorest system.

Note: In order to generate a License Key you will need to already have access to Phorest on a computer. If you do not have access to Phorest on a computer but need a license key, please contact

Step-by-Step Guide:

In Phorest, go to ManagerAccess & License Keys, and click the License Keys tab at the top of the screen.

Here you will see a list of your already existing License Keys. To create a new key, click the Create New License Key button.


Give your License Key a name, then click the Create button and a new License Key will be generated.

  Useful Tip!

Give your license key a relevant name e.g. 'Kate's Home Computer', or 'Salon Office Computer'. This will make it easier to manage your license keys in the future, by knowing which keys are assigned to each computer.


To view the License Key and Password, click the name of the new license key you created on the main License Keys screen, and a window will pop-up with the License Key and Password.


Note: License keys are single-use only, meaning you cannot use the same license key on more than one computer. For each new computer, you will need to generate a new License Key.

After you've generated your license key, you can download the Phorest installation file from our website to begin the installation or you can click here for a step-by-step guide on how to download and install Phorest.
