If you mean that you don't see your module in 'Settings'

  • Go to Settings - Modules - Update Module List
  • Click 'Update'
  • Go to Settings - Modules - Installed Modules
  • In the Search box, delete the filter item 'Installed'
  • Look for your module (switch to List view if necessary)
  • Install your module

Good luck, Bart

Thanks, you're right

I've struggled with all that basic stuff myself, so I'm happy to help.

You need to create view file e.g. mymodule_view.xml and then update module list. Then you can see your custom module in addons list. You can refer the following link for developing custom module: https://doc.openerp.com/v6.1/developer/03_modules_1/
