Solution: Four Steps to repair Tally Memory Access Violation - 0xC0000005
If you have been working with Tally for sometime, you might have come accross
'Memory Access Violation' error with some code - '0xC0000005'. This usually spells
doom to many users. Luckly, there are somethings you can do to attempt to solve the problem.
Step 1: Edit the Tally.ini Configuration File
There is a setting that tells Tally to automatically load a company. Supposing the company file is corrupted, you might never start Tally.
So disable it. The 'Tally.ini' file is in Tally directory.
Set "default companies from 'yes' to 'no'
Save the file, close and start Tally. If Tally starts without issues, then your default company file is corrupted and you will need to carry out repair
outlined later in this article.
Step 2: Adjust Screen Resolution
Tally has issues when being used with fewer colours. Additionaly, different versions of windows have different minimum requirements. Access Display
Settings in the control panel and change Display Settings as
Screen Resolution : 1024 by 768 pixels
Color Quality : Highest (32 bit)
Screen Resolution : 1024 by 768 pixels
Color Quality : 16 bit High Color
For Windows 98, ensure that Font Size is set to 'Small Fonts' otherwise Tally may goof.
Once this has been done, restart you computer and start Tally. If you still have problems, try the next step.
Step 3: Remove/Delete Printers
Yes, sometimes Tally has a thing with printers! Make sure you have printer installation CDs nearby. Delete the configured printers (including vitual
printers). Go to Start > Control Panel > Printers & Faxes.
Try to fire tally. If it works, re-install only printers that you use and you should be fine.
Step 4: Contact Tally Support
At this point, you probably have a more complex problem - this should not make you give up. Contact Tally solutions for more help.
How to Repair Damaged Company File
Restore older backup
In 'Step 1' above, you might have established the problem to be a corrupt company file.
- Change to directory to the location where data is stored, usually 'Data' in the tally folder.
- Company files are named using numbers - eg: 1001, 2002 e.t.c. Copy the corrupt company folder to a safe place.
- Delete contents of the corrupt compnay folder.
- Start Tally and restore your latest backup.
Now, start Tally and you should be fine!
If you encounter 'Memory Access' error while editing a record
Sometime everything works well so long as you are not deleting or modifying a record. I noticed that, for some unknown reasons this problem arises
when I try to delete a certain record.
I have tried to re-produce this scenario without success. Here is what you can do if you have this kind of problem:
- Carry out instructions outlined in 'How to Repair Damaged Company File' above.
- Start Tally and press 'CTRL+ALT+R'
- You will be asked to rewrite the company file. Select the problematic company and accept to re-write.
- Once the process is complete, exit tally.
Start Tally and edit your records without. If you still have difficulties, then contact Tally Solutions.

We are using Tally 7.2. Since yesterday one company is not being shown in \"Select Company\" list. While checking the data file of that company, it is present in the tally \"Data\" folder.
I cant understand this. Is the data file corrupted? If yes then how can I make it appear in the \"Select Company\" list again so that I can work on it. Look forward to your response.
