base_report_designer extension for OpenERP 7.0 not working with OpenOffice

on 5/8/13, 2:11 PM 4,155 views


I tried to install the "base_report_designer" extension for OpenERP 7.0 with OpenOffice but when I download it from my OpenERP Server it gives me a file called "base_report_designer_install_" with no extension.

I tried to rename it to "openerp_report_designer.zip" as suggested in a similar question, it gets installed but when I try to work with it, it just blocks and gives an error message: "uno.exe has stopped working".

I am using OpenERP 7.0 All-In-One for Windows7.


In my case, the plugin did not work with 64 bit openoffice 3.4. I had to install the 32 bit version and it worked.

  1. Uninstall OpenOffice if you can't remove the previously installed (but not working) plugins.
  2. Download the base_report_designer.zip from h_t_t_p_s ://doc.openerp.com/6.0/technical_guide/base_report_designer/

Worked for me.
