As far as I know, all modules should be placed in the addons directory.

After placing your module in that location, update your module list (Settings -> Update Module List). Now you can install / search for your module (Settings -> Installed Modules).

Important: When you change the python code of your module, you have to restart openERP (restart the service on Windows, or restart your computer), in order for openERP to reload the changed code when you upgrade your module.

i use openerp *.exe not *.tar.gz, is it different?
