I have an error almost identical to question 850/how-to-install-mrp-application-error-regarding-resourcetimesheet_group1/

In this case, the traceback is:

I have uninstalled MRP, restarted openerp, updated the resource module, and again restarted openerp, however the error is always the same. I cannot install the MRP module. Using demo data with additional modules: Invoices, Sales, Purchases, Stock.

The Resource module is installed without demo data, and I cannot see how to change this. The MRP moduled is going to beinstalled with demo data, however it is not installed. Sorry, "my karma is insufficient" to upload screenshots, nor links.

UPDATE. I have created a new database, with no flag "Install demo data". I have installed no new modules. The first thing I have done is to install MRP module. I got the same error as before.

Uncheck the Demo Data for MRP. Or try to reinstall resource with demo Data. Keep me informed.

I cannot modify that checkbox! It's read-only, so I don't know how to avoid installing demo data.

Can you use PgAdmin III to browse the Database ? There is maybe a solution with PgAdmin III.

There is probably a problem with the revision of OpenERP 7.0 you are using. Update to the last one.

I have destroyed the database, uninstalled openerp 7.0-20121227-075624, downloaded last version 20140408-231240, reinstalled ...and I still have the same problem !?!?! using .deb file for installation

Did you reinstalled with Demo Data ? Do you have PgAdmin III installed ?

Strange, very strange, how this can be possible? Why mrp module installation done with demo data, when the others modules installed without Demo Data? Are you missing something you don't report in question or comments? See in your openerp-server.conf which values stated for "with_demo=" and "demo={}" parameteres.

UPDATE ir_module_module set demo=True where name='resource'; and then update module resource, so the demo data is installed, the problem resolved.

set without_demo = True in openerp-server.conf file

or UPDATE ir_module_module set demo=True where name='resource'; and then update module resource, so the demo data is installed, the problem resolved.

Are you trying to install mrp with demo data ?

Check if the resource module is installed, and with demo data.

See the following, to know if Demo Data are installed or not: Is the "checkbox" checked or inchecked?

Hi, the resource module is installed. How can I know if there are demo data?
