Uninstalling Tally 9

Uninstalling Tally

1. Click Uninstall Tally 9 from Start > Tally 9.

2. Click on Uninstall to uninstall Tally 9

Note: You need to have administrator rights to uninstall Tally 9


Note: If any of the Tally 9 files are running then a message is displayed ‘Couldn’t Delete Some of the files. Exiting Uninstallation…’ Click OK. To uninstall, close the file/s and start the uninstall procedure again

3. Click Finish to complete uninstalling.

Uninstalling removes all the files created during Installation except for the Data folder which remains as it is.

On uninstallation, a Backup folder containing a Restore folder with the date and time of uninstallation suffixed appears in the Tally folder.

The Restore_date_time folder contains the Lang folder which has the dct files and the stat.900 file as they do not get deleted on uninstallation.

Re: How to Install / Uninstall Tally 9

Hi Vinwin,

First of all, can you please tell us which Operating System are you using? Usually, the error code that you are getting is because the tally 7 software which was installed in your pc has been either moved or might have corrupted. You can try to do the following:
  • Firts right-click on the file you want to open.
  • Click Properties.
  • Under the General tab, at the end of the window you should be able to see a security option like this: Security : This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer.
  • Click the button Unblock.
  • Click Apply.
