Do you know you can make one module DEPEND on the other?

If you install test1 and test2 is not installed, it will be installed first.

See the tags you can use in __openerp__.py at https://doc.openerp.com/6.0/developer/2_4_module_development/module_descriptor/

AHhh okey thank you a looot , So i can create a new module test3 and Add : "depends" : ["test1", "test2"], ... Is that it ?

Yes, or in the __openerp__.py file for module test1, use "depends" : ["test2"] - then you don't need a third module.

when i tried this , i got the following error : Error

You try to install module 'test1' that depends on module 'test2'. But the latter module is not available in your system.

Then check that module test2 is available in the addons path - OpenERP can't find it.
