I'm trying to install a module in OpenERP 7 but no matter what I try it still doesn't appear in the modules list. The module is sale_order_reopen which I placed in a directory specified in the configuration file as module path. Then I restart the server, update the list of modules but mine is not there. Since the module installation is not covered in documentation, can someone please give me a hand with this? Any step I missed in the process?

Is it a custom module?

No, this is the one - http://v6apps.openerp.com/addon/7135. Why? What's the difference?

that has the posibility that it was created for 6.1 not for 7. here are the modules that are made for v7 https://www.openerp.com/apps

There are some stuffs which you need to change in __openerp__.py file.

  1. Replace update_xml by data.
  2. Add auto_install: False and application: False.
  3. Remove active: True option.

Restart OpenERP Server, Update Module List and then search for your module.

Go to "installed modules", and drop the "installed" filter in the search bar. Your module should now appear.
