I am trying to install Tally on a Raspberry Pi 4 4GB. I am currently using raspbian buster and twister OS. I installed tally in both the OSes using wine and box86. When I try to run it I get the following error:

0120:err:winediag:ODBC_LoadDriverManager failed to open library "libodbc.so": Cannot dlopen("libodbc.so"/0x43596b66, 101)

After this error, nothing happens. The process doesn't even terminate until done manually.

Is there any way to make tally work properly in the ARM platform?

  • try this sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install unixodbc-dev libmyodbc Apr 17, 2021 at 14:38
  • i tried but its showing unable to locate Apr 19, 2021 at 7:37
  • Try your luck installing libodbc1 - ODBC library for Unix libodbcinstq4-1 - Qt-based ODBC configuration library odbcinst1debian2 - Support library for accessing odbc ini files Apr 20, 2021 at 8:01
  • all files are already installed, main problem is its failed to open those libraries,its not saying that file not found Apr 22, 2021 at 5:08
  • by executing this command "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libodbc.so" before running i can over come that error now am getting new issue. Apr 22, 2021 at 6:37

Probably you have to get ARM based installer. Ask Tally group to convert their code to run on ARM architecture or linux.

As Tally ERP seems to be Windows only (according to their website needs at least Windows 7 - which in return needs powerful x86 hardware) this cannot be emulated on a much weaker ARM system. As @AnandSingh correctly said above, ask Tally if they can compile their software so that it can run on Raspberry Pi. Which heavily depends how they have developed their software.
