Troubleshooting the Printing Problems:
In this case when ever you would try to print the software would exit unexpectedly with giving exceptional message. Some times the message would be insufficient height or width to allocate.
To trouble shoot you have to check of what is the paper size defined in the printer. You can give your custom setting and see if the height and width of the paper matches with the height and width in the Tally printing menu. Try to strike the right combination by changing both the values one by one.
Another problem comes with printer driver. If the machine you are using for tally has too many printers then their printer drivers conflict with Tally. In case of such error tally would give you problem in opening. To sort it out Delete all unnecessary printer drivers.
