Installation Instructions (Windows)

This article applies to Angelfish v2.33 and earlier.

If you use Angelfish Software v2.4+, please use the new Help Center:

After filling out the Trial Request form, you will receive a link to download the software and an email that contains a serial code.

You'll need the serial code to unlock the trial version, so you'll want to keep the email handy.

Support is available - if you get stuck, our support team will help!

How to Open a Support Ticket


Before You Begin

1) README: How Angelfish Works

If you're new to Angelfish, the Administrator Essentials article is a must read.

2) User Rights

Angelfish needs to install as a service, so we recommend installing Angelfish while logged in as a local administrator.

3) TCP Port

Angelfish will default to port 9000 for the web UI.  You can change the port in the agf.conf file after installation.

4) Installation Directory

By default, Angelfish will be installed in C:\Angelfish\.  You can choose a different folder or drive during installation.

5) Download the Installation executable

The download URL is shown after you fill out the Trial Request form.


Installation Steps

1) Run the installation executable file

2) Access the web UI & enter the serial

Training Video (opens in new tab):

Open a browser and enter the IP address or hostname of the Angelfish server, plus the port (:9000).  For example: 

http://localhost:9000  OR  OR

You will be presented with a page to enter the serial you were sent via email.  Simply copy & paste it into the field and click "Activate".  After the server communicates with the licensing server, the login screen will be displayed.

If your Angelfish instance is not able to contact the licensing server, you will be prompted to enter a support ticket for manual license activation.

3) Login

The default username / password is:

admin / Angelfish123
