I do not know the details on developing on windows, but I know that using python 3.4 is not preferred. If possible, use 2.7 instead.

That said, first check out the basics of OpenERP. Learn how things are done by just looking through the code. Use the developer mode in the browser to see what views and objects are used. The developer mode can be activated by clicking "About odoo/openerp" in the menu of your user, right above the logout functionality.

When you have eclipse installed, also install pydev (www.pydev.org) which will allow you to easily create python projects.

After that has been done, read carefully through the documentation to create your first module. Get inspiration from the existin modules.
