I got windows installed 4.5 running on my machine already. Still I am getting this error while installing openerp 7.0. "An error occured executing the Microsoft VC++ runtime installer". Any thoughts?

I meant "windows installer 4.5" running already.

May not be the answer you're looking for, but running OpenERP/Odoo on Ubuntu is highly recommended. Even if you have to make a virtual machine for Ubuntu within Windows, you're much better off than trying to run everything on Windows. This was a great link to help me get started: http://www.theopensourcerer.com/2012/12/how-to-install-openerp-7-0-on-ubuntu-12-04-lts/ It was written for Ubuntu Server 12.04 but the same concepts apply to 14.04. Here's a link for installing from github: https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/how-to-install-odoo-from-github-on-ubuntu-14-04-for-testing-purposes-only-ie-not-for-production-52627 I'd recommend if you go the github route to checkout branch 7.0 rather than staying on the master branch. Even 8.0 is still a release candidate, so if you're looking to go into production I'd be weary of preparing to use 8.0.
