Once you have downloaded and installed the educational version of Tally with GST, tally will open up itself and it will look in the picture below.
There are 3 main options and a quit option at the end of the pink screen. This screen is called the startup screen in tally.
We will first see the option of educational mode because that is what you are looking for. Right? 😉
Work in Educational Mode in Tally ERP 9
This option allows you to use tally without buying any kind of license but with some limitations or restrictions.
One of the restrictions is that you cannot enter transactions on each and every date.
Other one I know of is that you cannot use the functionality of auto-bank reconciliation in tally.
But your purpose will be served.
You can easily learn entire tally with the help of educational version i.e. free version of tally.
As soon as you click on the option of work in educational mode in tally, you will see gateway of tally screen like in the picture below.
If you look at the bottom of the screen in your tally, you will see the tally version in the first box and educational mode written in the second box.
This is also one of the ways to know the version and type of tally.
Now, after this point, I have described the other options which are available on the tally startup screen and requires you to either have the license or to purchase the license to run tally.
Licensing Operations in Tally ERP 9
Activate your License
This option is used to activate your tally license if you have purchased the tally license for the first time.
You can activate all the functions of tally by entering the valid serial number and activation key even in the educational version of tally.
Reactivate your Existing License
This option is used to reactivate your existing license that you have already purchased from tally.
You can easily re-activate your existing license by entering administrator email address and Tally.NET password.
Get a Rental License
You can also get a rental license if you don’t want to purchase tally.
You have to fill in the simple form with all your details and on successful payment, you will get a rental license.
The pricing of the rental license depends upon the version that you choose and timing for which you want the tally rental license.
Configure Existing License
If you want to use an existing tally license on another computer or you have another license which you want to use, then this is the option.
You can easily reconfigure your existing license using tally license file or tally gateway server.
Note: If you have enabled a single user license in already and you use that on another computer, it will automatically get disabled in the first computer.
To use tally on multiple computers, you need to have multi-user version or gold version of tally.
Login as Remote Tally.NET User
If you are a Tally.NET user, you can easily login remotely from any computer that has installed Tally ERP 9.
You just have to provide Tally.NET user ID and password.
Once you are connected, you can see all the companies that are connected to the network.
Difference between Tally ERP 9 educational version 32 bit and 64 bit
In a simple way to see this – 32 bit and 64 bit versions of tally are the same.
It is just that your processor comes up with different capacity to handle RAM and other tasks.
A 64 bit processor can handle much more RAM than a 32 bit processor.
But, we don’t have to worry about this because tally utilizes a very less amount of RAM and therefore, it doesn’t make any difference if you are using the tally educational version of 32 bit or 64 bit.
In terms of functions, there is no difference between 32 bit and 64 bit versions of tally.
Restrictions of functionality in Educational Version of Tally ERP 9
As you are using the free version of tally, which is the educational version of tally, there are certain restrictions to the use of tally.
You cannot create transactions for all the dates in the educational version of tally.
This means you can enter all kinds of transactions in tally but not everyday. A selected number of dates only.
To my information, you can only enter the transactions on 1st and 2nd dates and 30th and 31st date of each month.
Another restriction is that, you cannot use the option of automatic bank reconciliation in tally because it requires you to have a TSS subscription.
TSS subscription only works if you have licensed version of tally.
These were the only restrictions that I know of. If you know any other restrictions in the educational version of tally, please let me know in the comments section below.
