I am new to Python,Postgre and openerp7. I would like to ask how to install openerp7 from source in windows. The reason I don't use allinone is that I want to use aeroo report module. I have tried to install but no success. Below are the steps I have taken:

  • Install postgresql
  • Install Python 2.7
  • Install setuptools
  • Download the required library stated in openerp directory\setup.py(except the LDAP library, I removed that line)
  • Install those library by navigating in their folder and run setup.py install (not sure if it is the correct way to install library)
  • Install openerp, run setup.py install (no error occurs)
  • Run openerp directory\win32\setup.py and OpenERPServerService.py, the service installed

However, the service is fail to start. The error from event viewer is as follows:

The instance's SvcRun() method failed

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\win32\lib\win32serviceutil.py", line 835, in SvcRun self.SvcDoRun()

File "D:\Users\GS_Admin\Desktop\openerp7\win32\OpenERPServerService.py", line 68, in SvcDoRun self.StartTERP()

File "D:\Users\GS_Admin\Desktop\openerp7\win32\OpenERPServerService.py", line 65, in StartTERP self.terpprocess = subprocess.Popen([server_path], cwd=server_dir, creationflags=win32process.CREATE_NO_WINDOW)

File "C:\Python27\lib\subprocess.py", line 711, in __init__ errread, errwrite)

File "C:\Python27\lib\subprocess.py", line 948, in _execute_child startupinfo)

WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified %2: %3

Any help on this or any installation guide to follow?
