Hi all, I ran CMD with "Run as Administrator" and then tried various ways to open Odoo on CMD, but was not able to do it.
I tried odoo.exe and odoo.py. Also typed in the destination of the Odoo.exe application. Still no success.

  Can someone guide me step by step on how I can do that?   

Many Thanks.

P.S. I have viewed all other threads on this community, but couldn't find the right solution.

Can you provide more information, especially also log entries?

@Ermin: I don't know how to get log entries. I always worked on Odoo technical side through the simple GUI. Just started figuring out the Server side.
