How to install module from launchpad?

on 8/1/13, 2:22 PM 2,571 views

Hello dear OpenERP experts.

I'm (very) new to OpenERP, so please excuse my dumb question; someone once said that 'there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers'.

I'm interested in trying the OpenERP Partner and Contact Management (found at code.launchpad.net/partner-contact-management) module from launchpad on my default OpenERP 7.0 Windows Install.

What are the necessary steps in order to install the above module?

Thank you for any pointers, George.

Hello George,

First of all code.launchpad.net/partner-contact-management is not a module; it is a repository that contains multiple modules (7).

you need to install bazaar on your system and its GUI : http://wiki.bazaar.canonical.com/WindowsDownloads http://doc.bazaar.canonical.com/explorer/en/

Then, you need to get this branch on your server : bzr branch lp:partner-contact-management

You now get a new directory "partner-contact-management" and you have tell OpenERP there are some modules located here. You do this by adding the path to the ADDON parameter of your openerp config's file.

Once done, restart openerp reload module list from "Configuration\Modules"

You can now install these modules.

Regards, Marc
