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.

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

  • - 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.  
Reactivate your Tally License
Reactivate your Existing Tally License


  • - 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.
