How to Switch to Tally Prime from existing Tally ERP 9 :The best way for smooth transition [ Video]

Tally prime is catching more and more eye balls in the accounting world of MSME's and the user experience is just WOW. ApniTally has personally installed Tally Prime and found users experience  with people who have no previous experience of Tally as well as those who have a good Tally ERP 9 work experience. The users who already useing Tally.ERP 9 found Tally Prime very refreshing and yet very known. They found it quite interesting to work in Tally Prime. Excitement to try hands on Tally prime is superb.  

How to smoothly switch to Tally Prime


New users who are first timers when first introduced to Tally Prime found it easy to use and understand. When told about new features of Go to it was like Tally's search engine to them. 

But we cannot ignore the possibilities that one may get stuck some where during your working and experimentation with Tally Prime. So there must be some helping hand for you if you are a safe player. Above all of this your current working should not be hampered due to your transition.

So what should be the best way?

As I have discussed with ApniTally readers what you should know before before shifting your license from Tally ERP 9 to Tally Prime, if all condition are satisfied and met with and you are ready to jump, then what the best strategy should be like. 

For safe surfer who don't want to take risks, what else could be the best for him, if he could just test his skills on new version of Tally Prime with demo company and keep doing his business work on existing Tally.ERP 9 side by side? And when he feel trained enough then he can shift his whole work in Tally Prime.

Yes this is the best way. Initially you should install Tally Prime in a separate folder and try your hands on some demo data in Tally Prime. Later on after some practice if you feel comfortable enough then you can shift your business Tally Data in Tally Prime. That way your transition would be smooth enough. How can you use both version of Tally simultaneously, I have explained in my previous article.

How to work in TallyPrime as well as Tally ERP 9 simultaneously

 Tally Prime is here. It has several Meanings for a Tally user. As Tally Prime is launched on Nov 9, 2020, It mean that :-

  • Tally ERP 9 would also have end of the life very shortly
  • To a Tally user it means Tally would provide no support to this product and no updates would be available for Tally ERP 9
  • It also mean that Tally.ERP 9 rel 6.6.3 is the last release
  • It also mean that sooner or later you have to shift your Tally.ERP 9 to Tally Prime

But for many of us it may not be possible to update immediately to Tally Prime as we may be having several challenges. Their must be some TCP's which our business is using and we may not have the updates for those TCP's. There may be some more reasons also which may be differ from user to user. See my article on things you should know before updating your TallyPrime

Run Tally Prime License with Existing Tally.ERP 9 License

But still if we want to experience the all new Tally Prime or want to learn or experiment  with it and also want to keep on doing your regular existing work in Tally.ERP 9 then this is also possible. You can work in Tally Prime and Tally.ERP 9 simultaneously.


How this can be achieved?

Follow these steps :

  • Take a backup of Your Data. This is a precautionary step. Just take it. 
  • Surrender your exist Tally.ERP 9 license. You can refer to my post on how to activate surrender your Tally License for reference. This step is optional but you should do it.
  • Go to Download page of Tally Prime and download it.
  • Install Tally Prime on a different folder. (Don't overwrite the existing folder which is c:\Program Files\Tally\Tally.ERP 9). You can make a small change. Install Tally Prime on c:\Program Files\Tally\TallyPrime see the series of pics to know how to do it.
Change path of Tally Prime Installation
Press More actions to change the path

Change path of Tally Prime installation folder
Enter on Install New

Configure the new path of Tally Prime
Click Configure to configure the new path

You can define your own path if you want. otherwise Tally's New path is C:\Program Files\TallyPrime. I have changed it to c:\Program Files\Tally\TallyPrime It would create the new path

Press enter to change the new path of the application

Make a new folder for Installing Tally Prime

Tally Prime is installed on New folder


  • - Reactivate your TallyPrime license.Your same email id and is valid for the upgrade. Please make sure your TSS is not expired, because you would not be able to activate license on TallyPrime if your TSS is expired.

  • - Now go to Tally.ERP 9 you may find License Compromise message in license no window. Just press F12,--> License and use Configure existing license. Press F2 and see if any license appears there? Accept it and your Tally.ERP 9 is also. working. 

A word of Caution

Remember to separate your Data folders also. It should be different for TallyPrime, because if you open an existing company in TallyPrime then data would be changed according to TallyPrime which would not be usable in Tally.ERP 9. 

"It is advisable to  make a new data directory for TallyPrime if you are using TallyPrime and Tally.ERP 9 both. It can be D:\TallyPrimeData" See pics on how to change your data folder in Tally Prime.

Tally Prime is here, Should I upgrade: Things to know before upgrading your Tally.ERP 9 to TallyPrime

 Tally Prime the latest version of Tally is being launched on Nov 9, 2020 at 12:30. Tally planned an online event all over the nation via facebook live . The download file for the new Tally Prime would be available from Tally solutions site 

TallyPrime Tally Prime Launched, Things you should know before updating to Tally Prime


It is stated by the Tally to be extraordinarily simple, delightfully flexible and incredibly insightful. There is no doubt about it also. The product has many well thought upon features as well as new look and feel which is very refreshing.  So what should an existing Tally customer do regarding Tally Prime? Should he download and upgrade it immediately?  

Apnitally is trying to answer few very important questions regarding Tally Prime. 

Requirements for Tally Prime

Although TallyPrime is a free upgrade for Existing users, but few things has to be kept in mind. You can go ahead for upgrade if

  • Your Tally Software subscription is updated and it is not expired.
  • Your have good knowledge of working on Tally and you can easily do work in Tally Prime and in case you stuck some where then your work is not hampered.
  • You have windows 7 or higher version and your Operating system is 64 bit.
  • There is no TDL running on your license of Tally.ERP 9.

Let me explain a little bit. 

Your TSS

If your TSS is expired then your Tally.ERP 9 would stop working if you upgrade to Tally Prime, you have to upgrade your TSS first. How would you know if your TSS is expired or not ? Just look below your Tally license no. There would be a date. If it is in red letters then your TSS is expired. You have to renew it.

Your Experience

If you are well aware of functionality of Tally.ERP 9 then working with Tally Prime would be even more easy and fun. But chances are there that you can stuck somewhere. You work should not be hampered due to this obstacle. So you should better watch some video regarding Tally Prime or should consult your Preferred Tally partner about this. But believe me if you work in Tally.ERP 9 on regular basis then Tally Prime is going to be cake walk for you.

Your System

Tally Prime works only on windows 7 or higher versions and with 64 bit operating system. So if your system is 32 bit then you should first upgrade it to 64 bit, then only you should upgrade to Tally prime.

Your Customizations

Last but not the least is that your Tally license should not be running some TDL's. if you are running customized solutions in form of  TDL's then first their compatibility has to be checked. There are strong chances that these TDL's may not work. If they would not work in Tally prime then your work may get effected.
