Make sure that TALLY Lock is attached on the printer port and type the following commands:-
Cd \TALLY Enter
You may use Upper-case or Lower-case letters for typing above commands. You should type these commands at the MS-DOS, prompt (i.e. when MS-DOS is waiting for instructions). If the above method fails, check the following:-
* Whether TALLY Lock is properly attached on a working printer port.
* Whether TALLY has been installed.
* Are you in the drive on which TALLY was installed? It is possible that TALLY was installed on drive D and you are trying the above in drive C.
If these are correct, then only a Hardware or Operating System problem can result in a failure.
Advanced Users: It is possible to run TALLY by correctly setting the MS-DOS command search PATH. This would remove the necessity of performing the "CD \TALLY" step. (Check the usage in the MS-DOS manual for environment variable and the use of PATH for further help).
Note: TALLY CANNOT BE STARTED BY ANY OTHER NAME. Thus, the command TALLY, \TALLY or C:TALLY may not work or behave unpredictably.
Renaming the program will also render it unusable.
