Do you have a file named Allocation.py in your module? There is single quote (') missing in your __openerp__.py file's 'demo':[ 'allocation_demo.xml ], After allocation_demo.xml, correct it also.

yes i have a file allocation.py but i havent code in it

Ok. There is only one line in your __init__.py file and which is import allocation. Is "allocation.py" is name of your python file? In init file we import the python files we have created in our module.

Your init file contains import allocation and the file name is allocation.py right? Are the spelling of file allocation is same in init.py? Also let me know the directory structure, is your module is in addons folder?

Check the log file for the error description, the log file is in the server folder of your openerp installation. http://forum.openerp.com/forum/topic24127.html
