How can I fix the ir_ui_view element <xpath expr="//group[@name='Weights']">?


locadb openerp.addons.base.ir.ir_ui_view: Element '<xpath expr="//group[@name='Weights']"
>' cannot be located in parent view

The solution/hack

In postgres table ir_module_module set the state to uninstalled for the concerned modules then do

openerp-server -d database -u all

After that, reinstall module, import data. This is ugly and cumbersome but works.
